Tour de Suisse Stage 5

Porte snatches yellow off Kung as Ulissi claims 5th stage

RBA/AFP – BMC’s Australian rider Richie Porte took the race leader’s yellow jersey off teammate Stefan Kung’s back as Italian Diego Ulissi won Wednesday’s fifth stage of the Tour de Suisse.

Home favorite Kung suffered over the final few kilometres of the 155km stage from Gstaad to Leukerbad which featured three climbs, eventually finishing 3min 23sec down on Emirates team rider Ulissi.

The Italian won a sprint finish from Spain’s Enric Nicolau (Quick-Step) and Dimension Data’s Dutchman Tom-Jelte Slagter.
