Tour of Switzerland: Geraint Thomas wins overall title

Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers) claimed final victory at the Tour de Suisse after he overhauled leader Sergio Higuita (Bora-Hansgrohe) in the stage 8 time trial in Vaduz, which was won by Remco Evenepoel (QuickStep-AlphaVinyl).

Two seconds behind Higuita at the start of the day, Thomas was strongly favored to divest the Colombian of the yellow jersey in the concluding 25.6km test. So it proved, as Thomas clocked the second-best time on the day, just three seconds behind Evenepoel.
