BORA - hansgrohe (BOH)
The cooker specialist Bora and the bathroom products manufacturer Hansgrohe are already household names to most cycling fans, thanks to three-time world road cycling champion Peter Sagan. The team colours are black with white lettering and turquoise elements.
Sagan has always won at least one stage of the Tour de Suisse in recent years. With 16 victories to his name, he currently holds the record for most stage wins at the TdS, ahead of Switzerland’s Fabian Cancellara, Hugo Koblet and Ferdy Kübler.
Sagan could potentially win three more stages at this year’s tour. Will the Slovakian champion extend his record haul even further in 2019?
In addition to having an experienced team to fall back on, Peter Sagan will also enjoy the support of a large roadside following again at this year’s tour.
But whether Rafał Majka, King of the Mountains at the Tour de France 2014, will line up at the Tour de Suisse is not yet known. With the finishes in Flumserberg, the Gotthard Pass and the concluding alpine circuit over the Furka, Susten and Grimsel passes, there are definitely some mountain stages that are likely to appeal to him.
