Team Katusha riders Daniel Moreno and Simon Špilak rode well in Sunday’s stage 2 at the Tour de Suisse, both active in the finale that saw a surprise winner with a late attack earn the top honors.  Kristijan Durasek (Lampre-Merida) lit out just after the 1 km to go banner and soloed in for the win at 4-seconds ahead of Moreno. Špilak was just behind in sixth place on the same time.

 

"I felt good today especially for having today be the first hard mountain stage. We had a nice opportunity today with two Katusha riders in the front but that's no guarantee for a win. The most important thing is that I had a good feeling as the last climb was really hard. Tomorrow we will get another chance. We need to see how we will recover from today and how the legs will respond," said team rider Daniel Moreno.

 

"Our plan today was to support our leaders Simon and Dani for the general classification. The last climb was very difficult as it was 4 km long. The guys did everything we asked for. The teamwork was very strong and everyone can be pleased with what we saw today. Of the nine riders in the front with the big names for the Tour de Suisse, we were there with two riders so it’s a fantastic start.  There are many kilometers still ahead of us and some very, very tough climbs, so both of our GC guys are in good condition and I’m happy with the shape they bring to this race," said team director Torsten Schmidt. 

 

Race leader Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin) kept the race lead by 7-seconds to Geraint Thomas and 11-seconds to Daniel Moreno. Simon Špilak rounds out the top ten on the general classification. 

 

The 161,1 km stage in the lake region of Risch-Rotkreuz featured two big circuits and then two smaller loops, with the later including the difficult climb in the middle. An original break of four riders was brought back on the final time up the climb with both Moreno and Špilak part of the group that went away on the descent. This group of nine riders managed to stay clear with Durasek able to sprint away from the group in the last kilometer. It was his first WorldTour race win. 

 

Racing continues in Switzerland on Monday. Stage 3 is 117,3 km from Quinto to Olivone.
