There was a dramatic sprint finish at stage 4 of the Tour de Suisse as Stefan Bissegger held off two close challengers at Gstaad.
The Swiss EF Education-Nippo rider joined a breakaway towards the end of the stage with more than five minutes remaining in the race.
He was joined by Benjamin Thomas (Groupama-FDJ) and Joey Rosskopf (Rally Cycling) as the trio made a late sprint for victory.

In the general classification, Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) acquitted himself well enough to ensure he retain the overall lead and the yellow jersey.
“Finally I got a stage win at the Tour de Suisse. I’m really happy with that,” said Bissegger after the race, who moved into fifth in the GC.

“I would say this one is nicer. This was a normal road stage, and the other one was a time trial, so more for specialists. Both are nice but here in Switzerland it’s maybe even a bit nicer.”
