Tinkoff will head for the United Kingdom for the Tour of Great Britain from September 9-15. Under the guidance of director Claudio Cozzi and Dmitri Konyschev, Bernardo Riccio, Nikolai Trusov, Alexander Serov, Elio Aggiano, Daniele Contrini and Salvatore Commesso will race.
"The key will be to be assertive and go for one or more stages. As fundamental players, we have Commesso, Contrini and Trusov," said a spokesperson for the team. Patron Oleg Tinkov will also be there although Sergey Klimove will not; for the third time this year, he is suffering from a fractured clavicle.
