The final preparations for the Giro d'Italia will be completed in the Tour de Romandie. The Swiss six-stage race kicks off with a team time trial and traditionally counts for a lot of climbing. An individual time trial in Lausanne will round out the race and decide the general classification.   

In last year's edition Marcel Kittel (GER) was closest to a stage win with his third place in the prologue. Once again in 2015, Team Giant-Alpecin will be looking for a good stage result in Switzerland.
 
The Team Giant-Alpecin line-up includes Luka Mezgec (SLO), who will be the man for the stages with a sprint chance, as well as Tobias Ludvigsson (SWE), who will use his time trial capacities to aim for a good results in the finishing stage, and Georg Preidler (AUT) who may try for a breakaway in one of the climbing stages. Tom Veelers (NED) returns to competition in the Tour de Romandie after recovering from a knee injury. 

Coach Christian Guiberteau (FRA) looks ahead: "Our main goal is to go for a stage victory with our sprinter Mezgec. For Ludvigsson it becomes an ideal opportunity to get into racing again after his wrist injury. In Romandie he and Chad Haga (USA) will get the space to gain rhythm, which might result in a nice GC classification. For most of the guys it will be their last race to refine their shape before the Giro d'Italia begins."
