Tinkoff’s Peter Sagan sprinted to victory in Sunday’s second stage of the Tour de Suisse, marking his 12th career stage win in the race.

At the end of a lumpy 187.6-kilometer stage that started and finished in the town of Baar, the reigning world road champion hit the line with a comfortable advantage over runner-up Max Richeze (Etixx – Quick-Step) and third-placed Michael Matthews (Orica – GreenEdge).

A small split at the finish saw a change in the overall race lead, with Jürgen Roelandts (Lotto – Soudal) finding himself on the right side of a three-second gap to Trek – Segafredo’s Fabian Cancellara. Roelandts, who missed out on winning the opening stage by just one second, now leads the Tour de Suisse, one second ahead of Cancellara in the general classification with Orica – GreenEdge’s Luke Durbidge six seconds back in third.

The race continues Monday with a 192.6km stage 3 from Grosswangen to Rheinfelden.
