Stefan Kung leads the Tour de Suisse after two stages

by CyclingTips

Stefan Kung (BMC) leads his home race, the Tour de Suisse, after two stages of the nine-stage event.

Kung was second in the stage 1 individual time trial, finishing eight seconds behind stage winner and teammate Rohan Dennis in the rolling 6km effort.

A lumpy stage 2 was decided in a bunch sprint with Philippe Gilbert (QuickStep Floors) taking the win ahead of Patrick Bevin (Cannondale-Drapac) and Anthony Roux (FDJ). Overall leader Dennis finished nearly 10 minutes down on the stage, leaving his younger teammate to take the leader’s jersey.

The Tour de Suisse continues today with another lumpy stage and one that ends with an uphill drag to the line. The general classification will be shaped by three mountain-top finishes, on stages 4, 6 and 7, as well as a 28.6km individual time trial on the final day of the race.
