Tiesj Benoot is set to lead Team DSM at the Tour de Suisse with a versatile roster that will support him in every terrain.

The team is ready to head to the Swiss race, which will have eight stages starting with a time trial in Frauenfeld and a good mix between hills and high mountains, before a last fight against the clock, which comes the previous day of the closing day that has a route featuring two climbs of the first category and one hors-category ascent.

"As is traditional for this race, the Tour de Suisse features a challenging parcours with some very hard days in the saddle, including a hilly time trial and changeable weather conditions which we need to be prepared for," said Marc Reef, Team DMS coach.

"We will look to our chances in the GC with Tiesj, and assess and look day-by-day where our chances are to go for them. For the hilly and flat stages we can count on the strong support of Jasha, Romain and Søren, while on the climbs we have our young but strong trio of Andreas, Thymen and Mark."

Team DSM's roster for the Tour de Suisse (June 6-13):

Søren Kragh Andersen (DEN)
Thymen Arensman (DEN)
Tiesj Benoot (BEL)
Romain Combaud (FRA)
Mark Donovan (GBR)
Andreas Leknessund (NOR)
Jasha Sütterlin (GER)
