Heartbreak on the line in a breathless sprint finish, and a mountain top ride to glory. Get the tissues ready – it’s a rollercoaster of emotions on today’s FINAL KILOMETRE.
Tour de Suisse, Stage Five, Brig-Glis to Cari 126.4km
Cruelly denied a stage win at the Giro, BMC’s Darwin Atapuma made no mistake today. El Puma attacked on the last climb and had just enough in the legs to hold off Warren Barguil (Giant-Alepcin). Ag2r-La Mondiale’s young gun Pierre Latour put in a fantastic ride to place third and take the overall lead. He’s on the same time as Wilco Kelderman (LottoNL-Jumbo) and holding 5secs on Sky’s Geraint Thomas.
I defy you not to get teary along with Darwin in these Velon CC highlights. Full highlights here
