Aqua Blue Sport (ABS) - Wildcard

The young Irish team entered the Tour de Suisse last year during its maiden season as one of the four wild card teams. The team, competing in dark-blue, gave an impressive performance and even managed to claim a stage win – the current American champion Larry Warbasse sealed solo victory in the mountain stage to Villars-sur-Ollon. In the Austrian Stefan Denifl, the Irish team also has a gifted mountain specialist in its ranks. Denifl won the Tour de Suisse mountains classification in 2015 while still riding for IAM Cycling and he claimed a solo victory at the Vuelta 2017 with a summit finish.
