The three-time world champion finished ahead of Quick-Step Floors speedster Fernando Gaviria and Australian Nathan Haas (Katusha-Alpecin) to claim his 16th career victory at the Swiss race.
“The team prepared everything to perfection,” Sagan said. “That way, I only needed to finish the job. During the bunch sprint, I focused on Michael Matthews (Sunweb) and Fernando Gaviria. During the final metres, the headwind made it extremely hard to move into the lead.”
Kung had started the day in the leader’s jersey after his BMC team won Saturday’s opening stage team time-trial but he extended his advantage by taking bonus seconds in an intermediate sprint after the break was caught with 26km to go.
“I felt good immediately so I took the chance to take the bonus seconds in the sprint because everything came back together,” Kung said. ”
There were no proper sprint trains on the run to the line with most of the lead-out rider burned out of the bunch during the attacks on the final climb and descent. Colbrelli sat neatly in the bunch as they chased down a long-range move from FDJ’s Arthur Vichot. With Vichot still out front, Colbrelli was the first to launch his sprint with 250 metres to go while Gaviria reacted almost immediately.
Daniel Oss (Bora-Hansgrohe) tried to bring the Frenchman back to set up Sagan’s sprint, but everyone was surprised as Colbrelli went early on the left-hand side of the road.
BORA-hansgrohe set a fast pace on the final climb to force a split in the peloton while up ahead, BMC’s Porte tested his legs with an attack with 19km to go.
