Tour de Suisse
June 15th – 23rd
SATURDAY, 22 JUNE 2019
Goms-Goms, 19.2km. Individual Time Trial.
“I’m happy obviously I would loved to win today – comments Rohan Dennis – but it’s not always possible. A lots of things went in the right the last week and at the moment to be second in GC it’s a great result. I was thinking my training was going well but I didn’t realize it was done this well”.
The Aussie rider, 6th in today’s ITT (19.2km) won by Belgian Yves Lampaert, has recovered 19” on the leader Egan Bernal and has maintained his second place with a 22″ gap from the young Colombian.
Domenico Pozzovivo has been very unlucky because he had puncture with only 6 kilometers from the finish line losing in that way important seconds on the other GC rivals. “It was really a pity – says the Italian rider, now 8th overall – because I was having a good race and instead I lost 30/40 seconds. Tomorrow the Queen stage will be very demanding and for sure I will try to recover positions”.
