Daryl Impey was the strongest. While one might think Michael Matthews (Team BikeExchange-Jayco) favorite at the end of the climb of Sattel, the South African rider of the Israel-Premier Tech team won in the sprint, this Wednesday in Brunnen, during the 4th stage of the Tour de Suisse. Soren Kragh Andersen (Team DSM) completed the podium, behind Matthews.
Starting at the front from the first meters of the race, Matthew Holmes (Lotto Soudal), Markus Hoelgaard (Trek-Segafredo) and Jimmy Janssens (Alpecin-Fenix) led the debate for a long time, only being taken back at around twenty. kilometers from the term. It all ended up being a sprint. A game from which Daryl Impey (37) did marvelously, not the first to start, but who knew how to take advantage of the space left by his competitors, in particular Alberto Bettiol (EF Education-Easypost), to rush in and cross the line first.
At the back of the peloton at the start of the climb of Sattel, the yellow jersey Stephen Williams (Bahrain-Victorious) hung on to catch up with the peloton and keep his property at the finish.
