Tour de Suisse 2018: Impressive Start list includes Sagan, Quintana and Porte!

tour de suisse

 

The provisional list of the squads and riders taking part in this year’s Tour de Suisse is quite impressive and it features several high-profile names in the sports’ world.

 

Tour de Suisse is set to take place next week on June 9 and will end on June 17.

 

Even though the list is provisional and not all the riders are guaranteed to become part of the tour, especially since Tour de France is right around the corner, most of the big names featured on the list have pretty much made up their mind to become part of this major warm-up tour.

 

Tour de Suisse 2018 features three mountain stages and Katusha Alpecin’s Simon Spilak will be one to be wearing number 1 as Nairo Quintana leads Movistar’s team.

 

On the other hand, Richie Porte has the help of the main BMC Racing team members including Rohan Dennis and Greg Van Avermaet.

 

Peter Sagan, the three-time world champion will most likely be the main star attraction.
