Team Visma | Lease a Bike has difficult day in shortened stage Tour de Suisse

In the ultra-short mountain stage at the Tour of Switzerland, the Team Visma | Lease a Bike riders were unable to compete for the day's victory. Cian Uijtdebroeks, Wilco Kelderman and Ben Tulett reached the finish line behind the leaders.

Originally the stage was supposed to go over the Nufenenpass, but the organizers announced some time ago that they were removing it from the course due to persistent snowfall. The new course consisted of only 42 kilometers.

The pace in the first part of the short ride was quite high, with an average speed close to 60 kilometers per hour. On the ascent to the finish, Uijtdebroeks, Kelderman and Tulett then had difficulty following the pace of, among others, stage winner João Almeida. 

"There wasn't a moment to catch their breath"

Marc Reef

Sports director Marc Reef said after the stage: "With only 42 kilometers, the first 35 of which were downhill and the last 7 steep uphill kilometers, it was a special stage. The peloton had a flying start, because within about forty minutes they were at the foot of the climb. From there, the pace was immediately high. There wasn't a moment to catch their breath. Unfortunately, Cian, Wilco and Ben struggled today. They couldn't keep up with the best in the end. We'll see what we can still do in the final part of this Tour de Suisse."
