UAE Team Emirates is set to start in the Tour de Suisse with a roster that mixes young talents with experienced riders.

The Swiss race will feature time trials, summit finishes and fast stages, which makes it attractive to all kinds of riders. One of the UAE Team Emirates cyclists to start in the race is Diego Ulissi, who will be back in racing after the Italian grand tour. "I got into good shape during the Giro d’Italia; I will try to make the most of it in the Tour de Suisse," he commented.

"The starting field is top class; there will be lots of jousting for the individual stages as well as for the general classification."

European champion Alexander Kristoff will make an appearance as a preparation for the Tour de France. "In the past, when I’ve chosen to compete in the Tour de Suisse as an important prelude to the Tour de France, I’ve always gotten a lot out of it, so I’m excited at the prospect of riding in Switzerland," the Norwegian explained.

"It could be a great chance to use the Swiss climbs to fine-tune my conditioning and try to make the most of any eventual opportunity to achieve a good result."

Complete formation of UAE Team Emirates for the Tour de Suisse (9th to 17th of June):

– Roberto Ferrari
– Filippo Ganna
– Alexander Kristoff
