The memory of Gino Mäder is to be honoured through a tribute ride and a ceremony in Zurich this Saturday, organised by Swiss Cycling.

Mäder died last week after a high-speed crash at the Tour de Suisse on stage five. At the time, his Bahrain-Victorious team said: "Gino was an extraordinary athlete, an example of determination, a valued member of our team and the whole cycling community. His talent, dedication, and passion for the sport has inspired us all.”
