Tour de Suisse 2012

Date range:
June 9-17, 2012

Tour de Suisse 2012

The 76th renewal of the Tour de Suisse has attracted a top class field and is seen as one of the key warm-up races for the Tour De France, which starts less than two weeks after it finishes on June 17. As well as allowing riders to test their form over a varied and challenging parcours, the race itself holds much prestige and is part of the UCI WorldTour.

 

The nine-stage race has been won in recent years by several big stars, notably Levi Leipheimer (2011), Frank Schleck (2010) and local boy Fabian Cancellara (2009). All three will be on the start line in Lugano and will be joined by the likes of Roman Kreuziger (the 2008 winner) and the man of the spring Tom Boonen.
