Round two of the Swisspower cup moves to Winterthur just one week after the series opened in Buchs.
Last weekend's Florian Vogel, Nino Schurter, José Antonio Hermida, Ralph Naef, Moritz Milatz, Jürg Graf and road racer Alexandre Moos are among the top men expected to attend. Vogel and Schurter finished first and third, respectively, last weekend.
The start of world champion Irina Kalentieva in the women's race is less certain. The Russian, who won the opening round, is suffering from a cold and will wait until closer to the race to decide about her participation. Sabine Spitz may also be there although she is still troubled by injuries from a fall sustained earlier this season. Other favorite women include Petra Henzi, Renata Bucher, Nina Göhl, Marielle Saner and Maroussia Rusca, the latter of whom finished just 20 seconds behind Kalentieva in round one.
