“Just like Dauphiné Libéré, Tour de Suisse is a warm-up race for Tour de France but we’re also here to achieve results. We have Roman as our leader and captain and we’ll see how far he can take it in the overall classification. We have a strong team to support him along the way and if the right situation occurs, we’re not holding any of our riders back in terms of shooting for stage wins as well,” says DS, Fabrizio Guidi.
The race is launched with an individual time trial over almost 10 kilometers but with a climb that will create a bigger time difference between than the length suggests. And there’s another, longer and even hillier individual time trial due in stage 7. Besides from the time trials, stage 2 and 3 are constant climbing while the race is decided and concluded in stage 8 and 9, which both have uphill finishes on an HC-category climb. It’s going to be a magnificently exciting race!
