Tour de Suisse
Stage 3: Grosswangen to Rheinfelden - Stage Details

Former Tour de Suisse stage winner Michael Albasini had a fantastic ride today to finish second on a wet, action packed stage three of the WorldTour Race. 

ORICA-GreenEDGE executed top tactics and teamwork again today with Paris-Roubaix winner Mat Hayman in the early breakaway.

Albasini found himself away with one other rider in the closing kilometres, but keen to spoilt the party for the local Swiss rider was world champion Peter Sagan who jumped across to the duo and went on to claim the stage victory. 

Sport director Neil Stephens was overjoyed with the team attitude, animating the race and setting up Albasini in the final.

"Today we had a few different options for the stage," Said Stephens. "We really wanted to make the race hard towards the final."
