The leader’s jersey switched shoulders yet again in Switzerland as the time trial wrought havoc amongst the GC riders. It wasn’t any easier over at the Women’s Tour of Britain either. In fact both races were packed with thrills and surprises – which is just the way we like them!
With only an 8-second cushion between himself and Andrew Talansky, and a super-short stage of only 57km, Astana’s Miguel Angel Lopez defended his yellow jersey by attacking hard on the only remaining climb of the stage to become the first Colombian to win the Tour de Suisse. Movistar’s Ion Izaguirre and Giant’s Warren Barguil rounded out the final podium in what was a nip-and-tuck GC battle all week.
