George Hincapie finished ninth for the BMC Racing Team on Friday's stage of the Tour de Suisse after being part of a 17-man breakaway that escaped early on in the 222-kilometer race.

Frank Now Ninth Overall

"The plan was to get someone up there in the break so they could help Mathias, (Frank) but it turned out his group was too far back from George at the end," BMC Racing Team Assistant Director Michael Sayers said. With two days to go, Frank is the team's best-placed rider overall. He slipped two spots to ninth, 3:20 behind race leader Damiano Cunego (Lampre-ISD). Thomas De Gendt (Vacansoleil-DCM) won the stage by soloing away from the breakaway group.
