Professional Continental team LPR has announced its roster for the upcoming 60th edition of the Tour de Romandie. Roger Beuchat, Andreas Dietziker, Daniele De Paoli, Giuseppe Muraglia, Dmitri Konychev, Carlos Ochoa and Yuri Metlushenko will be at the start for the Swiss team in Genève on Tuesday.
"It will be a very hard competition for us," said team manager Orlando Maini. "Again, we will line up with a diminished roster as part of the team remained in Italy to contest the Gran Premio di Larciano and the Giro di Toscana. Still, we'll try to honour the race in the best way we can. We'll have to be very concentrated to grab every possible opportunity. Of course, our rivals are particularly sharp, but we have the quality to do well - especially Ochoa, who is in good shape. Maybe he can be a surprise in Romandie."
