Belgian Philippe Gilbert (Quick-Step Floors) claimed a bunch sprint victory at Tour de Suisse on Sunday, as native Stefan Küng dons yellow.

LAUSANNE (AFP) — A day after Australian Rohan Dennis took home the prologue time trial win at the 2017 Tour de Suisse opener, Belgian Philippe Gilbert (Quick-Step Floors) claimed a bunch sprint victory in Cham, Switzerland on Sunday.

Gilbert won the sprint at the hilly end of the 172.2km course in front of New Zealand’s Patrick Bevin (Cannondale-Drapac) and France’s Anthony Roux (FDJ).

Dennis was dropped 25km from the finish following a fall and was unable to re-enter the lead group. The 27-year-old BMC rider surrendered the overall lead to his Swiss teammate Stefan Küng, who finished second in Saturday’s prologue.

Australia’s Michael Matthews is now second overall at one second off Kueng, with Giro d’Italia winner and Sunweb teammate Tom Dumoulin of the Netherlands third on the same time.

Monday’s second stage should favour a sprint finish again at the end of a 159.3km run to Bern.
