Swiss rider Cyrille Thiery dominated the 32nd Grand Prix Rüebliland, a 2.1-ranked juniors race. Thiery led the race from the start and defended his overall lead in the final stage in the best possible way by winning the final stage. Thiery beat his compatriot Silvan Dillier (Friktaler Cycling Team). The duo was four seconds ahead of Luzern's Patrick Lutenauer and six seconds ahead of the peloton.

Thiery, who rode for the Swiss National Team, has good chances to make a name for himself. Winners of the junior event include Tour de Suisse winner Roman Kreuziger (2004), Martin Velits (2003), who rides for Milram or recently retired Beat Zberg (1989). In 2006, the winner was Björn Thurau, who now rides for Elk Haus-Simplon.
