Tour de Suisse : Le contre-la-montre pour Remco Evenepoel, Geraint Thomas s’adjuge l’épreuve

We don’t know if it’s the smell of the Tour de France, but Geraint Thomas rediscovered the pleasure of a victory in a stage race on Sunday in Vaduz. The Briton, second in the final time trial of the event, contested over 25.6 kilometers, overthrew Sergio Higuita, who had taken control of the Swiss event on Saturday. The fastest of the day is called Remco Evenepoel (Quick-Step).

Thomas, an individual time trial specialist, finished second 3 seconds behind the winner and at the same time snatched victory from Colombian Sergio Higuita who had started the race with the leader’s yellow jersey on his shoulders. 79 runners took the start of this final stage of an 85th edition marked by a series of abandonments, around forty runners having been dismissed due to Covid.

Note that Peter Sagan (TotalEnergies), also affected by the Covid, was forced to retire on Sunday before the last stage. At the end of the seventh stage the day before in Malbun (Liechtenstein) Sagan had to submit to a routine anti-Covid test “which turned out to be positive”, he had posted in a message on the social network.
