Milram to Dutch race & Tour de Suisse

Erik Zabel will lead Team Milram in the Tour de Suisse, which starts Saturday. "From an athletic point of view, the race is extremely challenging. The whole purpose of the race is to test your condition again in the high mountains," the German sprinter said. "There are two stages for sprinters. We want to make use of those."

Meanwhile, Alessandro Petacchi is continuing his Tour de France preparations with the Delta Profronde this coming Saturday. The race covers 199 km through the Dutch province of Midden-Zeeland.
