The Swiss Team has assembled a group capable of performing on all terrains. Italian Sprinter Alberto Dainese has already won three Grand Tour stages and will be the main man for flatter stages finishing in bunch sprints. His Swiss lead-out man, Robin Froidevaux, has been with the team since 2021 and will race his first Grand Tour ever, whereas Road Captain Matteo Trentin will try to add to his tally of eight Grand Tour stage victories in hillier terrain. The lead-out train will be completed by experienced German Alexander Krieger and fellow countryman Marius Mayrhofer, who will aim to capture his first-ever Grand Tour stage victory. The 2021 Vuelta a España King of the Mountain, Michael Storer, together with German Florian Stork, will be the team’s best options for a stage victory when the peloton hits the mountains. The versatile Dane Alexander Kamp completes the lineup, adding strength for hilly stages.

"We believe that this team gives us the best chance in the hunt for stages. We couldn't be more excited for our first Grand Tour," says team owner Fabian Cancellara, expressing confidence in the riders selected for the team’s inaugural Grand Tour.

The team will be supported by a staff consisting of 20 people, taking care of the complex logistics and the riders’ well-being. It's a big effort not just for the riders but for everyone involved. CEO Raphael Meyer explains, “To get here already required a huge effort from our staff, partners, and riders. We are ready and willing to go the extra mile to have the most successful Giro possible.”

The team is headed to Torino in the coming days to get ready for the first stage between Venaria Reale and Torino on May 4th.
