Peter Sagan sprints to victory in stage two of the Tour de Suisse

Peter Sagan tour de suisse 2018 stage 2

Peter Sagan (Bora-hansgrohe) won the second stage of the Tour de Suisse on Sunday as Stefan Kung extended his overall lead.

Sagan edged a sprint finish at the end of the 155km street circuit stage around Frauenfeld, with Fernando Gaviria (Quick-Step Floors) second and Nathan Haas (Katusha-Alpecin) third.

Kung had started the day in the leader’s jersey after BMC won Saturday’s opening stage team time-trial but he extended his advantage by taking bonus seconds in an intermediate sprint during the stage.

He now leads BMC team-mates Greg Van Avermaet and Richie Porte by three seconds.

The victory was Sagan’s fifth this year but first since he triumphed at the Paris-Roubaix in April. It was also his 16th stage win at the Tour de Suisse.

Monday’s third stage is a hilly 182km from Oberstammheim to Gansingen.
