Sina Frei will be swapping bikes this week, with the Swiss mountain biker taking to the road as she lines up for SD Worx at the first edition of the six-stage Tour of Scandinavia from Tuesday August 9 to Sunday August 14.

It’s not overly unusual to see mountain bikers make a foray onto the road, with compatriot Jolanda Neff regularly among those on that list. Frei in fact has raced alongside her mountain biking compatriot on the road for a national team at the Tour de Suisse the past two years. She also lined up at the World Championships road race in Flanders, where she came 15th.
