With the Tour de France currently dwarfing everything on the international calendar, it's easy to forget there are two stage races starting this Wednesday. In Germany the Sachsen-Tour (Tour of Saxony) kicks off from Dresden for five stages and a total of 795 kilometres including and individual time trial on stage four.
The Brixia Tour, in the north of Italy, spans the same five-day period but is marginally longer at 814 kilometres with six stages in five days. The opening day features a 150-kilometre road stage followed by a 12.3 kilometre team time trial. Both Milram and Gerolsteiner will send teams to both events.
Milram for Sachsen-Tour: Alberto Ongarato, Artur Gajek, Christian Kux, Dominik Roels, Enrico Poitschke, Martin Velits and Sebastian Schwager.
