Tour de Suisse

The 2014 Tour de Suisse took on extra importance when Britain’s Bradley Wiggins said he would not be picked for Sky’s Tour de France team this year. Wiggins’ performance in Switzerland, the final Tour de France warm up race, could have helped him stake a claim to a Tour start, but it soon fizzled out.

With most of the Tour favourites having ridden the Criterium du Dauphine, the Tour de Suisse was looking a little light on big name GC riders.

The race will also be the final Tour warm up for Mark Cavendish who will come up against Peter Sagan in the sprints. Cavendish will need to be on good form if he is to go up against Marcel Kittel with any confidence come July.
