Phonak betting on Clerc and Guidi in Tours

This Sunday in Paris-Tours, Phonak Cycling says it will be betting on its sprinters Aurélien Clerc and Fabrizio Guidi. The Swiss-Italian duo have displayed excellent form in the last couple of races and intend to come up with another top result for their Swiss team.

"We'll support Clerc and Guidi with all our strength. If our tactics fall into place during the 254 kilometre race, then they stand a good chance of taking a top result," said Gregory Rast and Florian Stalder, who placed 5th at Thursday's Paris-Bourges.

"It's my last race for Phonak Cycling and I definitely want to claim another top result," said Clerc. Phonak will end its sponsorship at the end of 2006.
