Team Sunweb starts in the Tour de Suisse with the aim of taking stage victories and explore General Classification options with Wilco Kelderman.

The Dutchman has not raced since Tirreno-Adriatico, where he broke his collarbone in the sixth stage. The team will also include solid riders that can fight for stage victories, including a team time trial where they can show why they are the world champions.

"We line up at the Tour de Suisse with a strong group of riders," said Sunweb coach Morten Bennekou. "With a well-rounded team like this, we have different cards to play for day results dependent on the stage parcours.

"A key stage for us will be the team time trial where we would like to put in a good performance.

Kelderman and Michael Matthews will be back in the race to test their shape ahead of bigger challenges. "After a solid training period we're also looking forward to welcoming Wilco back to the race action and we will aim to explore GC possibilities with him," explained Bennekou.

"He and Michael have just been on altitude camp in Livigno and their shape is looking very good. With such a strong team here we are motivated for a good week of racing."

Team Sunweb's complete roster for the Tour de Suisse (9th to 17th of June):

Søren Kragh Andersen
Nikias Arndt
Simon Geschke
Wilco Kelderman
Michael Matthews
Sam Oomen
Edward Theuns
