Tour de Suisse - Race Overview

The final day of racing closed out a successful week for ORICA-GreenEDGE that saw the Australian outfit win two stages from two distinctly different scenarios. Cam Meyer won a three-up sprint amongst riders from the early breakaway to take his first European road win of the season. Esteban Chaves won in the stage eight mountains, soloing to victory after he attacked an elite group of climbers in the closing kilometres.

"It’s been a fantastic week here as a whole. We didn’t tick all the boxes. It would have been nice to do something special with Gossy [Matt Goss]. We didn’t do that, but we were limited with the support we could give him. We ticked all other boxes, taking two stages wins.

"While both stage wins are special, I think the one with Esteban shows the team’s progression. We’ve won a mountain stage from a breakaway several times – with Clarkey’s win at the Vuelta in our first season probably the most notable of those. Estaban’s win yesterday is the first time we’ve come out of the bunch and won a mountain stage. I think it’s a sign that we’re on the right track with some of the different things we’re doing in terms of developing this team." - Sport Director Neil Stephens
