Phonak aiming high

Team Phonak has selected a strong line-up for the Tour de France, which begins in Fromentine this Saturday, July 2. The team has plenty of options for both stage wins and the overall classification, headed by two time stage winner Santiago Botero.

"After a good season so far, I also want to have a strong performance at the Tour de France," said Botero. "My goal is to claim some podium spots. A third stage win is the dream of my sixth Tour. To climb up on the podium at the Tour de France is always an incredible experience. It's going to be a hard race once again. My favourite for the overall win is clear: Lance Armstrong will be the winner in Paris for the seventh time."
