Roman Kreuziger is targeting another overall win in the Tour de Suisse and today he decided to test his legs and his rivals. Having created a 7-rider group, the Czech showed good condition but with the climb coming far from the finish, the move didn't pay off.

 

In Tour de Suisse, the peloton set out to do the 182 kilometer long, mountainous second stage consisting of two HC category climbs and two 2. Category climbs between Belinzona and Sarnen.

 

The mountainous terrain and a series of attacks by among others, Tinkoff-Saxo’s Roman Kreuziger, naturally emptied the field of riders. The breakaway of three riders, Cameron Meyer (Orica GreenEdge), Philip Deignan (Sky) and Lawrence Warbasse (BMC) still had a decent gap of 50 seconds inside the final 5 kilometers though and the leading rider, Tony Martin (Omega-Pharma Quick Step) had to chase down the escapees himself to retain his overall lead.

 

The front trio however made it to the finish line where Cameron Meyer (Orica GreenEdge) was the faster rider in the sprint.

 

Tony Martin still leads overall.

 

“It was a tough day for everyone and Roman (Kreuziger) tested his legs on the final climb and managed to create a gap with six companions but in the final 20 kilometers of the stage, the bunch managed to join forces and reel them back in. However, there a several opportunities for our riders ahead as we’re chasing both stage wins as well as the GC,” sports director Fabrizio Guisi said.
