Peter Sagan won his thirteenth career stage at Tour de Suisse with a bold attack on the final climb of a lumpy circuit around Rheinfelden, Switzerland Monday. The Tinkoff – Saxo rider bridged up to a breakaway duo with 10km to go and dispatched Swiss riders Michael Albasini and Silvain Dillier, who sprinted to second and third, respectively in stage 3.
The Slovak world champion now leads the race overall after the 192.6km race, three seconds ahead of Lotto – Soudal’s Jurgen Roelandts. On Tuesday, stage 4 should offer a more sprinter-friendly race from Rheinfelden to Champagne before the nine-day tour heads to the mountains.
