Tour de Suisse. Stage 1. Race starts with short time trial

- We did not expect big results here at the first stage, since we don't have real specialists in short time trials in our roster. The riders did their best and we saw that Omar Fraile and Luis Leon Sanchez are in a good shape. So, we are looking forward to the upcoming week with many nice stages, which will suit us much better, - said Dmitri Sedoun, sports director of Astana Pro Team.

Tomorrow, the Tour de Suisse will continue with the second stage in the same town Langnau im Emmental. It will be a difficult distance of 159.6 km with three local laps and 6 categorized climbs.
