Gregory Rast will be a strong support for his fellow countryman Fabian Cancellara in the spring campaign. Gregory finished 4th in the 2011 Paris-Roubaix and is a former winner of the Tour of Luxembourg.
The three-time Swiss Road Champion (2004 and 2006 as elite; 2002 as U23) is a strong, tall rider perfectly suited for the classics. He has a big engine and will be a worthy support rider to Cancellara in the cobblestone classics. Both riders have known each other since they were in the junior ranks.
The Tour of Flanders is Rast’s all-time favorite race but he is more than valuable as a domestique in the Grand Tours too.
Gregory Rast was the perfect teammate in the 2009 Tour de France won by his team. In his early career Gregory Rast was a succesful cyclocross rider.
