After the ten Danish riders at the Tour de France got to experience home roads, the 34 Frenchmen at this year's race received the adulation of their native fans, and the peloton's 18 Belgian's briefly breathed Belgian air, it is the turn of the Swiss this weekend.

There are just four in the bunch - Stefan Bissegger (EF Education-EasyPost), Sylvan Dillier (Alpecin-Deceuninck), Stefan Küng (Groupama-FDJ) and Marc Hirschi (UAE Team Emirates) - but it will still be a treat to race in Switzerland for them.
