Trio to put finishing touches to Tour preparations

Igor Antón, Ion Izagirre and Juan José Oroz will all aim to show they're on track for the Tour de France in the upcoming Swiss equivalent.

The Tour de Suisse, to be run from Saturday the 8th through Sunday the 16th, will serve as the final big tune-up for the three - though they might line up in the national championships before boarding their planes to Corsica.

Joining them in Switzerland will be Adrián Sáez and Giro d'Italia quartet Gorka Verdugo, Robert Vrecer, Jorge Azanza and Ricardo Mestre.

The now-disgraced Aitor González is the only rider from the team to have won the race outright (2005), but Antón has been close in the past: in 2008, he won stage two and claimed third overall.
