IAM will line up several climbers for the Circuit Cycliste Sarthe which starts today. With the Tour de Romandie being a big goal for the Swiss team, Johann Tschopp, Criterium International winner Mathias Frank, Stefan Denifl and Thomas Löfkvist will use the race to refine their condition ahead of their home race.

 

For Johann Tschopp, the prospect of racing the Tour of Romandie motivates him.  He knows he needs to regain his health and condition after a little setback in the week leading up to the Critérium International. 
 
“I had good sensations at the Coppa Stresa, but when I returned home to my family, I fell ill.  I found myself in bed with stomach flu, which made me lose a lot of minerals.  Racing in Corsica, I was a long way from having recovered all my strength. 
 
"I still managed to give the team a helping hand to the base of the last climb.  Then I just put myself into survival mode to finish.  Fortunately, I had a good foundation.  Last week during training, I was pleased to see my form come back little by little.”    
 
At the Circuit Cycliste Sarthe-Pays de Loire, the IAM Cycling rider from the Valais region in Switzerland will hope to find the condition necessary to prepare him for the Tour of Romandie. 
 
“I don’t know this race, but we have a great team for Sarthe with Mathias Frank, Stefan Denifl and Thomas Löfkvist.  I will work for the team to get back into the rhythm and test myself in ideal conditions. 
 
"Then I will know what I have to do to finish my preparation for Romandie, which is my first big goal of the season.  Since I will not be racing in the Ardennes (Flèche Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège), I will have 15 days in which to focus and prepare myself.”
 
Riders: Stefan Denifl (Aut), Mathias Frank (S), Reto Hollenstein (S), Gustav Larsson (Su), Thomas Löfkvist (Su), Johann Tschopp (S).
