News – Cavendish to Tour de Suisse

Omega Pharma – Quick-Step Cycling Team has announced the team for the Tour de Suisse, a nine-stage, 1331.2km stage race from June 14th through the 22nd.

The race consists of a prologue, an individual time trial, and five mountain stages with three summit finishes. Stages 4 and 5 may be bunch sprints.

“We are here with a strong team for the sprint,” Sport Director Wilfried Peeters said. “We will go for the sprints on the two occasions that favor the bunch kick. Mark is here with almost his complete leadout train. So it will be an important moment on the approach of the Tour de France.

The other goal of the team will be the two time trials — the short prologue and the 25km individual time trial. For Tony, it will be a good goal personally, but also Niki Terpstra can do well in this kind of effort. We don’t have a guy for the GC, but we have a strong team for specific situations of the race.”
