Anderson, the first ever non-European to wear the iconic Tour de France yellow jersey, will travel to the Festival as a guest of the organising committee and is expected to ride several laps of the City Park course but is yet to decide whether he will join the masters race.
“It was fantastic that the event organisers were able to secure Chris Froome to ride in Tasmania last year,” Anderson said.
“The Stan Siejka Cycling Classic has always attracted high calibre riders and I am really glad to see that it has caught the attention of World Tour riders who consider the field is strong enough for them to sharpen their form as they build a base for the start of the international season. I am really looking forward to attending the race."
Anderson’s presence will be sure to inspire the 2015 line-up of elite male and female riders, which includes two-time Classic winner Neil van der Ploeg, Nathan Earle, Matthew Goss, Dutchman Koen de Kort, new Orica-AIS signing Annemiek van Vleuten and locals Macey Stewart and Lauren Perry.
These headline riders will be backed by strong teams, with Drapac Pro Cycling, Orica-AIS, Avanti Racing, High5 Dream Team, CharterMason Giant Racing, GPM Stulz, Mobius Future Racing and Dulux TIS all travelling to Launceston.
