Potent team for Tour de Suisse

Euskaltel will bring a star-studded team to the Tour de Suisse, the team's website reveals.

The Swiss stage-race, running from 9-17 of June, will see the following Euskaltel octet line up: Igor Antón, Mikel Astarloza, Gorka Izagirre, Mikel Nieve, Romain Sicard, Pablo Urtasun, Rubén Pérez and Iván Velasco.

Astarloza, Izagirre and Pérez, and perhaps also Sicard and Urtasun, will be looking to hone their form for the Tour de France starting at the end of the current month, while Nieve and Velasco will be hoping to capitalize on the form acquired in the recent Giro d'Italia. Antón's appearance marks his first race back since he broke his collarbone in Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
