Cadel Evans will take part in Australia's Tour Down Under in Adelaide for the first time in four years in January, race organisers said on Saturday.
It will be the first time Evans, 36, has competed in his home tour and UCI World Tour event since he won the Tour de France in 2011.
Evans, who will race for the BMC Racing Team, said he has set his sights on next year's Giro d'Italia and is using the Tour Down Under as preparation.
"With my focus on the Giro d'Italia, everything comes earlier in the year," Evans said in a statement.
