Bigla: New Swiss women's team

Russian Zoulfia Zabirova and Swiss Nicole Brändli will lead a new Swiss women's professional team named Bigla. The team will be directed by former pro and Zabirova's partner Felice Puttini, and will feature Brändli and two other Swiss riders in its relatively small six woman roster. Zabirova will concentrate on the one day races, while Brändli will focus on the tours.

Bigla is an office furnishing company managed by Fritz Bösch, a one-time president of the Swiss cycling federation.
