Team MTN-Qhubeka will be on the starting line of the 2014 Tour de Suisse as the first South African registered cycling team to take part in the event.

This team received a wild card invitation for the event, taking place from June 14-22.

Linus Gerdemann will lead the team in the Tour de Suisse, a race he has participated in six times previously and where he won his first race as a professional cyclist.

“I want to thank our sponsors and all our supporters for pushing us to new heights and wanting to see us compete in the World Tour cycling events,” said Team Principal Douglas Ryder.

Gerdemann is excited to see his new team in his favourite race.

“The Tour de Suisse is my most favourite race of all races, it is incredibly well organised and races on the most beautiful terrain. It is also where I won my first professional race so it will always be a special race for me. Our team is very well suited for this race and we will work hard to do a good result there.”

Team MTN-Qhubeka will be joined by two other wild card teams, the Swiss Professional Continental Team IAM Cycling and the Polish team CCC Polsat Polkowice.
