Denmark’s Andreas Kron claimed victory in the sixth stage of the Tour de Suisse in a sprint of three. At a length of 130.1 km, starting from Andermatt and ending in Siedron, almost 3200 meters of altitude had to be mastered.
Crone crossed the finish line only in second place behind Rui Costa. With the three-time Tour de Suisse winner from Portugal dropping his streak in the last 100 metres, the race jury denied him the win after a lengthy video study.
Belloud and Van der Boyle surrender
Simon Belloud is no longer competing in the sixth stage of the Tour de France 84. After consulting with his team Androni Giocattoli, the man from Lower Valais decided to give up before the final weekend. He wants to be ready for the 3-day Adriatica Ionica Tour, which begins next Tuesday.
Matthew van der Poel also abandoned the tour. The Dutchman is said to be suffering from a mild cold and does not want to jeopardize his other goals for this season. In his first Tour de Suisse, the multi-level player managed to win two stages and wear the yellow jersey in two days.
Hershey’s is the best Swiss
Alternatively, the 23-year-old Dane could look to the Lotto Soudal team for his second World Tour win of the year. Austrian Hermann Bernsteiner came third after Costa. The best Swiss was Mark Hershey in 15th, trailing 1:15 minutes.
Karabaz is in the lead – Saturday will be fast
Richard Carapaz of Ecuador continues to lead the overall standings, 26 seconds ahead of Denmark’s Jacob Vogelsang.
On Saturday, the individual trial follows 23.2 kilometers from Sedrun via the 650-meter Oberalp Pass, from where it heads on a quick descent to Andermatt.
