The Saunier Duval Prodir and Davitamon Lotto teams have announced eleventh hour changes to their line-ups for the Tour of Switzerland, which starts today.

Saunier Duval Prodir is dropping Oliver Zaugg, who has a leg problem; Joaquim Rodriguez, over-tired after the Giro d'Italia and Euskal Bizikleta; and Manuele Mori, who has also been rather busy lately riding both the Giro d'Italia and the Wachovia series in the US.

Zaugg, Rodriguez and Mori will be replaced by Angel Gomez, David De La Fuente and Marco Pinotti.

Davitamon Lotto's Leon Van Bon is out of the Tour of Switzerland with what the team describes as a "poisoned knee". Van Bon's participation in the Tour de France is also in doubt. He will be replaced in Switzerland by Bart Dockx.
