Russians lead Tour of Switzerland
It was a tough day in the saddle – 126 kilometres over two big mountains – but Gusev was the strongest on the day. He broke away to cross the misty finish line two minutes ahead of second-place Chris Horner for the predictor lotto team.
Fellow Russian Vladimir Efimkin managed to keep out of trouble – to wear the yellow jersey going into the penultimate day. He has a 24-second lead over Kim Kirchen in the overall standings.
