Tour de Suisse
Stage 2: Baar to Baar - Stage Details

World championship silver medallist Micheal Matthews sprinted to third place today on stage two of the Tour de Suisse, after an impressive lead-out from ORICA-GreenEDGE train.

The Australian outfit delivered Matthews into the final metres, but as Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) opened up the sprint first, Matthews lost momentum and had to settle for third spot with Sagan snatching the stage honours.

Sport director Neil Stephens praised the team efforts today, riding tactically well as one unit throughout the entire stage.

"The boys had a cool head today," said Stephens after the finish. "They all knew exactly what to do and when to do it."
