Langnau-Langnau 159.6km. Hilly.
Rohan Dennis maintains the leader back jersey for the Points classification, but must leave the GC yellow jersey to the young Danish Kasper Asgreen thanks to the 3 seconds he pocketed underway. The Australian champion is now 3rd overall with only one second gap from the new race leader.
“We controlled the race – explains Spaniard Ivan Garcia Cortina – with Valerio Agnoli, Antonio Nibali and Andrea Garosio so that the breakaway would not take too much advantage. At the last lap, I pulled in the front to help Rohan take the final climb in best position possible and then the last part of the job was done by Matej Mohoric and Domenico Pozzovivo “.
“Tomorrow, the third stage from Flamatt to Murten (162km) should end with a bunch sprint – still Cortina – with the last 300 meters uphill. I hope to do well, as also in the next stage”
