Tour de Suisse, Stage 6: Morabito Third Overall

17. June 2010

La Punt

Steve Morabito had a great performance during the sixth stage of the Tour de Suisse. His seventh place finish during the king’s stage from Meiringen to La Punt moved him up into third place overall.

No sign of weakness
The rider from Valais showed that he’s in excellent shape. At the Albula Pass, the final climb, Morabito held his own in the group of favorites and displayed no sign of weakness. He crossed the finish line with the first chasing pack just 42 seconds behind the winner and new leader, Robert Gesink. Morabito moves up into third place overall, 36 seconds behind the leader.  

Frank fights for the climber’s jersey
Mathias Frank shone once again as an animator. Along with 12 other breakaway riders, he took off early on and wasn't caught until the Albula Pass. Frank crossed both the Susten and the Oberalp Pass in second place. As a result, he was just two points behind Wouter Poels, the new leader in the mountains classification.
