France
to win Le Tour.?

 

?The perfect mix of experienced and young riders and the right people in management positions are the reasons why we can tackle the new season with self-confidence,? adds team owner Rihs.

 

The Phonak team has just returned from training in
Mallorca. The team will participate in its first race at the Doha International GP on January 27.
