The Tour de Suisse is the last test for Rabobank before the Tour de France starts on July 7, and although Michael Boogerd came in seven minutes down on Stage 3 winner Alessandro Proni, there is nothing to worry about says team manager Adri van Houwelingen. "He is not yet at his strongest, and that probably won't change during the race. But next week when he is at home, rest will be his priority," explained Van Houwelingen. "Then he will be fully recovered from the race and from that will be stronger for the start of the Tour".
