While many of the big Tour de France contenders have chosen to hone their form at the Criterium du Dauphine, a star-studded cast is set for the Tour de Suisse, the WorldTour’s other traditional Tour form-finder.
Three of the jersey winners from last year’s Tour will start the race – King of the Mountains winner Rafal Majka (Tinkoff-Saxo), sprinter Peter Sagan (Tinkoff-Saxo) and best young rider Thibaut Pinot (FDJ).
Mark Cavendish (Etixx-QuickStep) will be chasing stage wins at the Tour de France, and can fine-tune his preparations against the likes of Sagan, Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) and John Degenkolb (Giant-Alpecin) in Switzerland.
In the absence of three-time back-to-back winner Rui Costa (Lampre-Merida), there will also be a new name atop the GC at the end of the nine-day race.
And you can keep a close eye on proceedings on British Eurosport, with live coverage of the first road stage and daily highlights through the week.
