Tour de Suisse
Stage 6: Weesen to Amden - Stage Details

Stage six of the Tour de Suisse was animated by a breakaway of 15riders and harsh weather conditions.  

ORICA-GreenEDGE completed the challenging stage safety in the main peloton, conserving energy ahead of three further difficult stages.

Former ORICA-GreenEDGE rider, Pieter Weening (Roompot-Oranje) claimed the stage victory after attacking solo on the final climb with six kilometres remaining. 

"It was another hard day today with the weather conditons," explained sport director Neil Stephens. "The boys had a few goes to get in the move, but once the break had gone they just had to sit in the bunch and try to not get too cold and look after themselves."
