The 2019 Tour de Suisse commences on Saturday, June 15, for nine days of WorldTour racing.
The Swiss race is a warm-up for the Tour de France, with general classification contenders taking on the hilly parcours as they test their legs.
Today (May 1st 2019) heralds the start of a new chapter for Team INEOS.
INEOS is now the sole owners of Tour Racing Limited (the Team’s holding company), signifying a fresh start following the conclusion of Team Sky’s decade-long ownership by Sky and 21st Century Fox.
Team INEOS officially launched at a press conference, held at The Fountaine Inn in Linton today, with Sir Dave Brailsford, Team INEOS team principal, and Sir Jim Ratcliffe, founder, and Chairman of INEOS, in attendance.
The 99th edition of the Volta a Catalunya starts next Monday with a mountainous out-and-back race in Calella to finish on Sunday 31 March with a hilly criterium in Barcelona. The battle for GC probably boils down to high altitude finishes on the third and fourth day of action, respectively in Vallter 2000 and La Molina.
