Stage 4a - August 30: Muotathal - Zug, 74.8 km

Two courageous riders get their reward

By Andreas Oppliger

The first part of the fourth stage on Saturday morning was a short, flat journey of 78 kilometres from Muotathal to the picturesque town of Zug. Just a few minutes after the start, two riders got away and were able to stay clear for the entire stage. The pair consisted of Danish rider Kasper Klostergaard and Boris Shpilevsky, from the Russian Angelin Travel St. Petersburg squad. As expected there were no changes on the GC on Saturday morning, as these two riders were no threat.

This morning the weather god was on the side of the whole peloton, although heavy clouds full of rain began to darken the sky. Maybe this was the reason that the peloton was so fast, and covered the stage at an impressive average speed of 46.4 kilometres per hour. The two fugitives in front worked together very well. What looked like a hopeless breakaway in the beginning became the decisive move in this stage to Zug. Although the lead on the additional lap around Zug melted like ice in the summer sun, the resilience of the Danish-Russian duo was stronger than the combined power of the other teams in the peloton. They

The leaders reached the finishing straight only a few seconds in front of the chasing bunch, and started the sprint for the stage win. 21 year old Boris Shpilevsky got the better of Klostergaard to take the win. Nine seconds later, Dutchman Peter Möhlmann won the bunch sprint.
