Ian Boswell will race for the first time in 2016 tomorrow at the Cadel Evans Road Race, before staying in Australia for the Herald Sun Tour. The American knows that he needs some big results in what will be an important season at Team Sky.

 

“I'm good to go I think. I had a hard block of training in Nice over Christmas and New Year, and then ramped things up even more at the team's training camp in Mallorca. I'm looking forward to getting started. The Cadel race looks like a fun one - a one-day race in warm weather which will allow me to see where I'm at before the Herald Sun Tour,” Boswell told the team website ahead of tomorrow’s race.

 

Boswell says he will be in domestique mode while in Australia, working for Ben Swift and then Chris Froome.

 

“At the Cadel race our leader will be Ben Swift. He's an amazing sprinter - one of the fastest guys in the peloton - so my main job will be keeping him well positioned, especially if there's crosswinds throughout the day. Rowe and Kennaugh were also up there last year, so I'll be helping those guys too, and then at the Herald Sun Tour it'll be all about Froomey. He's motivated to ride well and it'd be great if he could start his season with a win. My job in that race will be helping to pace him on the harder stages when we hit those climbs.”

 

Boswell wants to be part of Mikel Landa’s Giro team as Sky aim to win their first Maglia Rosa. It would be his first Giro after riding his first Grand Tour at the 2015 Vuelta a Espana.

 

“Riding the Giro is a big goal for me, supporting Landa there. I learned a lot from Roche and Knees at the Vuelta on how to manage my energy over a three-week period and I'm looking forward to doing a job for Mikel in mountains. The last three stages are on climbs which I'm familiar, so hopefully my knowledge will be a big asset on those. Generally though, I want to be as reliable as possible over the full race and play a valued role in the team.”
