Tour de Suisse Stage 9

Procycling - - Gallery - Im­age:Tim De Waele

With a slim lead of eight sec­onds go­ing into the inal, moun­tain­ous day at the Tour de Suisse, Miguel Án­gel López de­cides that at­tack is the best form of de­fence. On the last climb, the 2,383m Flüela Pass, and in hor­ren­dous con­di­tions, López at­tacks alone, crest­ing the sum­mit 30 sec­onds clear of his clos­est chasers, and an­other 15 clear of sec­ond-placed An­drew Talan­sky. López will be caught on the de­scent but in­ish with the front group, which is enough to give him his irst GC win as a pro, at the age of just 22.
