Team Bahrain Victorious (Switzerland) - Press Release: After missing out on the win with a second-place finish on Stage 1, Sonny Colbrelli showed his strength by getting over the final climb and sprinted to victory.
The second stage started in La Neuveville, taking on 3,435m over six categorised climbs, finishing in Saint-Imier across 165.7 kilometres. An early breakaway formed, including Pernsteiner and five other riders who managed to take a gap of nearly three minutes.
With 20 kilometres remaining, the group were all brought back together. Pernsteiner was able to hold on after being in the breakaway to work for Sonny. The team worked together with our GC riders Jack Haig and Damiano Caruso, leading Sonny out in the last km with him sprinting for the win and moving into the green jersey.
Sonny Colbrelli was delighted with his win: “I’m very happy, yesterday I was second and very close. Today it was a super team and a super lead out with Jack and Damiano and a super sprint. I’m very happy!”
