Svein Tuft to Ride in Tour de France

June 20, 2013

Svein Tuft will be riding in his first Tour de France for his team ORICA-GreenEDGE. He was named as one of nine in the Australia-based pro team.

Although Tuft hasn’t raced in the prestigious tour before he has competed twice in the Giro d’Italia and also in the Vuelta a España. As eight-time Canadian National Time Trial Champion his spot is well deserved.  “Svein is a world class time trialer,” said ORICA-GreenEDGE Sport Director, Matt White. “He’ll be crucial for our team time trial ambitions. He’s a strong guy with a huge amount of power to chase breakaways or look after the sprint train. We can use him in a lot of ways. I’m really looking forward to taking him to his first Tour de France.”

The Tour de France starts on Sunday June 29 and concludes Sunday, July 21.
