Soudal Quick-Step has announced the team around Remco Evenepoel for the upcoming Tour de Suisse (11-18 June).
The world champion will be the leader of the Belgian team for the general classification, while for the sprints, Tim Merlier will take the lead.
Soudal Quick-Step is heading to the Tour de Suisse with a strong team, with Kasper Asgreen, Mauro Schmid, Mattia Cattaneo, James Knox and Bert Van Lerberghe present alongside their leaders.
“We have Remco back on the team and we are looking forward to it. The two individual time trials suit him, but also guys like Kasper, Mauro and Mattia can do something nice on those stages,” said sports director Geert Van Bondt.
“As Remco returns after illness, we’ll just take it day by day and see what he can do in the mountains, where he’ll also have James to help him, in addition to the other guys. For the flat stages, our man is Tim, who can count on Bert to guide him, so we’re confident in our chances of getting some good results.”
