Porte wearing yellow jersey
CYCLING: BMC’s Aussie rider Richie Porte took the race leader’s yellow jersey off teammate Stefan Kung as Italian Diego Ulissi won the fifth stage of Switzerland’s Tour de Suisse.
Home favourite Kung suffered over the final few kilometres of the 155km stage, which featured three climbs, finishing 3min 23sec down on Emirates team rider Ulissi.
In his final race before July’s Tour de France, Porte sits atop the overall standings 20sec ahead of Sunweb’s two Dutch riders Wilco Kelderman and Sam Oomen.
“All of the guys did their part today and I am so happy to have the jersey and keep it in the team,” Porte said.
