Canyon-SRAM arrived at the Tour de Suisse Women with a strong team, and after three days of racing the squad had three stage podiums, leads in the mountains and young rider classifications and three riders in the GC top 10.

Élise Chabbey took a third place on stage 1 from the breakaway but made clear that she wasn’t targeting the overall. Neve Bradbury emerged as the team’s best GC card after the stage 2 ITT, and the team went looking for opportunities on stage 3, sending Bradbury and Kasia Niewiadoma into the breakaway.
