Team DSM coach Huub Duijn: “This year’s Tour de Suisse has four race days and a little bit of everything in it. We start with a short 46 kilometre circuit race which has a steep climb in every lap, so we expect it will be an intense and aggressive day. The second stage is a 25 kilometre time trial, and in the last two days we will take on some Swiss mountains. We head to the race with a mix of young and experienced riders, where they can bounce off each other. For our youngsters, it’s a really nice race to help their development and with the more experienced riders, we will look for stage results, taking it day by day. We have chances in every stage to aim for a top result with some good racing.”
