Tour of Switzerland should provide clues for Le Tour

Unlike the Criterium du Dauphine which, excluding Contador and Menchov, has a modest field the Tour of Switzerland should provide some clues about who will be in the frame come July.

The sprints should be exciting affairs with Mark Cavendish, Oscar Freire, Heinrich Haussler, Alessandro Petacchi, Robert Hunter, Gerald Ciolek, Allan Davis, Peter Sagan, Matti Breschel, Stuart O’Grady and Robbie McEwen expected to start.

Fabian Cancellara who won last year says he will be riding a clean bike and among the other contenders for the overall are  Andy and Frank Schleck, Roman Kreuziger Michael Rogers, Luis Leon Sanchez, Simon Špilak, Robert Gesink and Kim Kirchen.  Also at full strength is the team of Johan Bruyneel who takes Lance Armstrong, Levi Leipheimer and Andreas Klöden.

I guess a lot of people will be listening for a buzzing sound if Cancellara attacks.
