G.P. Gippingen: The battle of the Swiss riders

The Swiss hope to battle it out among themselves and win "their" HC-ranked race, the G.P. des Kanton Aargau in Gippingen. Swiss Team Phonak is sending six Swiss riders (and one Spaniard), Team Gerolsteiner is sending all four of its Swiss riders, and even T-Mobile will have its one Swiss rider on the start, former winner Steffen Wesemann.

The race consists of ten laps of a 19,6 km course with two mountains and 240 climbing metres per lap.
