‘Nothing is misplaced but, no drama’ – Remco Evenepoel absorbs Tour de Suisse setback


At first, it seemed set to be one other Remco Evenepoel exhibition. When the world champion attacked with 6km of the climb to Villars-sur-Ollon remaining, he appeared destined to place his stamp on the Tour de Suisse.

By the summit, nonetheless, Evenepoel would discover himself in injury limitation mode after he surprisingly struggled on the higher reaches of the summit end to stage 3. He would recuperate barely within the remaining kilometre to put fourth on the stage, 21 seconds behind winner Mattias Skjelmose (Trek-Segafredo).
