Trentin takes another top-10 at the Tour de Suisse
Italian sixth in the Grenchen sprint
On the third stage of the Tour de Suisse, 176.9km from Aesch to Grenchen, Matteo Trentin took his second top-10 in as many days.
The day was characterized by a breakaway made up of six men who were brought back less than 10km from the finish.
Here the peloton took the front with UAE Team Emirates pushing with four riders to set up the sprint, before a crash in which Ulissi was involved.
The final kilometre saw the best sprinters launch to conquer what could be one of their last opportunities in this edition of the race.
Trentin finished in sixth position, with Peter Sagan (TotalEnergies) fastest of the lot.
Trentin: “The team worked well. I lost a few positions in the penultimate corner trying to get up to Kristoff, but I found some riders stalled and I had to put in an effort to overtake them. I finished sixth, but I know I can do a lot better. Tomorrow we hope to have another chance to improve “.
Marc Hirschi is now in seventh place in the General Classification ahead of the 193.3km scheduled for tomorrow.
