CCC Sprandi Polkowice (CCC) - Wildcard
CCC Sprandi Polkowice, a professional Polish cycling team based in the Lower Silesian town of Polkowice, gets a wildcard for the start of the Tour de Suisse.

The Polish team's best known rider is the soon-to-be 44-year-old Italian Davide Rebellin. The former classic racer was banned for two years because of a doping offense and has been riding for the Polish team since 2013. Davide Rebellin has ridden the Tour de Suisse seven times so far, coming 52nd in the overall classification last year. In the current season, the German Stefan Schumacher is also riding for CCC Sprandi Polkowice. The team colour is a gaudy orange.
