Chris Froome will start his 2016 season the Jayco Herald Sun Tour in Australia from February 3-7.
The 30-year-old will lead Team Sky in their debut appearance at the five-day race, which begins with a 2.1km prologue and ends with a hill-top finish on Arthurs Seat.
Froome said: "I'm really pleased to start my 2016 season at the Jayco Herald Sun Tour. Victoria is a beautiful part of the world and racing in the warm climate will give me a good platform for the new season."
Froome last raced the Jayco Herald Sun Tour in 2008, when he finished fourth.
