- Stefan Kung and Stefan Bisiger secured a double victory for Switzerland at the start of the 85th Tour de Suisse.
- Kung is the fastest driver in the Battle of Time at Frauenfeld.
- The eastern Swiss team completed 10.9 kilometers and four seconds faster than compatriot Stephane Biseiger.
It was a great opportunity for Stefan Kung to win in his home country. It’s a technically time consuming experience that doesn’t require huge gradations and is perfectly tailored for the European Champion in time trials.
The 27-year-old lived up to his role as the favorite and took victory today in the most important race on the Swiss stage. Küng national Stefan Bissegger also showed a solid performance and was only 4secs behind.
The philippines are in good shape
Behind the Swiss, Julian Alaphilippe, one of the favorites for the overall win, managed to position himself in a perfect starting position. The road world champion was just 19 seconds behind fifth. The Frenchman will want to chase the leader’s jersey in Küng’s second stage on Monday.
In this section, the peloton should cover 173 kilometers and 2375 meters in height from Neuhausen am Rhein to Lachen. Neuhausen is the first stage of the Tour de Suisse. You can follow the stage from 15:25 live on the SRF Zwei and in the SRF Sport app.
