Tour de Suisse (st. 2)
Anacona keeps showing good form in yet another demanding finish in Switzerland; Sagan (TCS) victorious as Rojas takes 10th
The 2015 Tour de Suisse had new surprises in store with a hard finale, full of attacks, in the race's Ticino day -the shortest, over 117km- from Quinto to Olivone, including the Gothard (HC), Leontica (Cat-2) and Aquila (Cat-3). Slovakia's Peter Sagan (TCS) won a twisty sprint out of a 30-rider group, after the big pace in the group and the final moves -one of them led by Winner Anacona (Movistar Team)– chased down the early break.
The Colombian was the top performer from Jaimerena and Laguía's squad for the second day on a row, the Blues having another man at the front in José Joaquín Rojas -10th into the sprint-. It should be easier for the Spaniard to exploit his abilities in what's expected to be the first bunch kick in the race on Tuesday: 193km from Flims to Schwarzenbach, with Kirchberg (Cat-3) crested 22km from a slightly uphill final straight (3-4%).
