Team KATUSHA ALPECIN (TKA)
Since 2017, the Katusha-Alpecin team has been riding under a Swiss licence. And the team also has a Swiss rider on board with Reto Hollenstein.
Katusha-Alpecin is home to Simon Spilak, two-time overall winner of the Tour de Suisse (2015 & 2017). The Slovenian, who won the seventh stage to Sölden in impressive fashion, will again be lining up at the Tour de Suisse this year.
The Australian Nathan Haas is another rider who made quite an impression last June, with a second-place (Gommiswald) and third-place (Frauenfeld) finish.
But the team’s best-known rider is German sprinter Marcel Kittel, who has already won 14 Tour de France stages.
