Tour de Suisse – Stage 8 – Sagan sprint king

Peter Sagan easily won his second stage of the Tour de Suisse and wrapped up the sprinter’s jersey on the penultimate stage of the race. In what was the only true group-sprint stage noticeably absent were Mark Cavendish, Tom Boonen, Robbie McEwen and Andre Griepel. Tomorrow’s stage will sort out the overall with Damiano Cunego precariously holding a slim margin over his rivals who are much better against the clock.
