TBM riders line up for Tour de Romandie
The 73rd edition of Tour de Romandie in the French part of Switzerland is on from Tuesday, April 30th till Sunday, May 5th, 2019. The route features a lot of climbs due to mountainy and hilly Swiss’s landscape and a battle of great intensity is expected. To make a 6-days race more interesting, this year’s edition will have two time trials. It will have 5 stages, starting with 3,9 km long prologue in Neuchâtel on Tuesday April, 30th.
TBM line-up: SONNY COLBRELLI, CHUN-KAI FENG, LUKA PIBERNIK, JAN TRATNIK, MEIYIN WANG, STEPHEN WILLIAMS and HERMANN PERNSTEINER.
Sports Director Vladimir Miholjevic is very optimistic before the race: “Tour of Romandie gives opportunity to make good result in reduced bunch sprint with Sonny, especially in stage 2. Initial prologue suits Sonny and Tratnik can also perform well. Herman will have free hands to make best possible GC result – top 10 would be great. Time trial at last 5th stage should be nice opportunity for Tratnik. In general, we will try to find the way to achieve best possible result in all stages.”
