High Road to use Romandie as Giro dress rehearsal

Fresh off Kanstantsin Siutsou's win at the Tour de Georgia and with less than two weeks to go until the Giro d'Italia, Team High Road is fine tuning its form for the Italian Grand Tour. "Romandie is like a dress rehearsal for the Giro, but a dress rehearsal where we want to win," said Team Manager Rolf Aldag.

"The opening prologue is very short and that's great for Bradley [Wiggins]. We know he can do well in those sorts of challenges. Then there are a couple of stages for the sprinters where Mark [Cavendish] will have a good opportunity. Basically, though, Romandie is a last chance for the team to go through their paces before heading off to the Tour of Italy."
