Tour de Suisse
Stage 4: Rheinfelsen to Champagne - Stage Details

Danish rider Magnus Cort used his technically ability today to sprint to sixth place on stage four of the WorldTour race, Tour de Suisse.

The day was once again animated by an early breakaway, with the peloton leaving it late to swallow the escapees up in the ifnal three kilometres, just in time for a technical sprint finish with a tight corner 150metres to go.

Etixx-Quickstep took the lead around the bend and went on to seal the top two spots on the podium as Cort held on for sixth place for ORICA-GreenEDGE, two seconds behind the race winner Maximiliano Richeze (Etixx-Quickstep).

"It was a pretty eventless day until the final," sport director Neil Stephens. "A break of four went up the road, the boys were able to just sit in the bunch all the way and wait until the final."
