Tour of Switzerland

by JAndrewHill   June 7, 2012  

Is this similar to the tour de suisse?

I can't work out who is the nearest to Wiggins in this race. . . i.e. a Top class climber who can time trial well. Maybe Kruiswijk?

And I predict we all transfer out the chap from Wohlen bei Bern with the Leccy bike after the time trial.

It is the tour de suisse....

Mollema? Gesink? Leipheimer? Velits? Danielson?

What if Mr Cancellara started going up hills as fast as he goes down them? I'd be like the bloke off the Ladbrokes adverts.

As it is, I reckon my team is unstoppable in the Tour de Suisse. I can't believe I managed to afford the line-up that I have. I can't wait to rise up into the top third of mediocrity. My Swiss train is going to be like the Cassandra Crossing but this time the drugs will work!

Starts with the obligatory prologue type TT(hard to see past home hero Spartacus there),followed by a BIG mountain stage where perhaps Horner,Nieve and Gadret should shine.

There follows 4 Sagan/Haussler/Boonen type stages in the middle(Stages 3,4,5 & 6) where points can also be accrued by breakaway guys.

Stage 7 sees a longer bumpy TT(Spartacus or perhaps Velits?) before getting the oxygen masks back on for 2 Mountain stages with a HC and Cat 2 finish respectively

A couple of solid GC guys like Gesink,Mollema or even Roche might be my mainstays.

Possible DS's Kovalanonas,Navardauskas,Albasini,Bookwalter,Tschopp?

Just picked my provisional team and I'm pretty happy with it - only 1 rider I'm a bit unsure about.

What happened to Tschopp? He was in there yesterday, now I wake up after the window closed and my purist squad is down to 8 guys. Sad
