Bahrain-Merida is set to start in the Tour de Suisse with an ambitious team that will aim for different objectives throughout the competition.

The 2019 edition of the Swiss race will start with a short individual time trial and finish with the Queen Stage, being a good competition to test the shape before the Tour de France. Domenico Pozzovivo will be the leader for the overall classification while Rohan Dennis, Ivan Garcia Cortina and Matej Mohoric will play diverse roles.

"We certainly have a good team for this Tour de Suisse," commented Bahrain-Merida sports director Paolo Artuso. "With Domenico Pozzovivo who will fight for the GC, with Rohan Dennis who will try to achieve results in ITT and Ivan Garcia Cortina and Matej Mohoric we could play for stage wins."

"After the Giro d'Italia I was training on the Etna volcano to prepare the Tour well," added Pozzovivo. "Two years ago, I won a stage and finished fourth overall. This year I would like to improve that result."

Bahrain-Merida's line-up for the Tour de Suisse (15th to 23rd of June):

Rohan Dennis
Matej Mohoric
Valerio Agnoli
Antonio Nibali
Ivan Garcia Cortina
Domenico Pozzovivo
Andrea Garosio
