With his fourth-place finish in a sprint on Stage 3, Steve Morabito of the BMC Racing Team moved into the top 10 Monday at the Tour de Suisse.

Frank Loses KOM Lead
Morabito is now eighth, 14 seconds behind new overall leader Tony Martin (HTC-Columbia). "The finish was pretty hard, with a three-kilometer climb," Morabito said. "I tried to get to the front and gave it all I had. I am also appreciative of the team because I was able to stay conservative until the last climb." The 196 kilometer stage was won by Frank Schleck (Team Saxo Bank). Mathias Frank of the BMC Racing Team was unable to retain the King of the Mountain jersey he earned on Stage 2.
