Deceuninck-Quick-Step's Yves Lampaert has been the fastest man in the individual time trial of the Tour de Suisse. The rider completed the course of the eighth stage in 21 minutes and 58 seconds.

The individual time trial of the eighth stage was 19.2 kilometres long in the district of Goms and had the potential to give a chance to the specialists. One of the first riders to set a competitive time was Thomas Scully (EF Education First) by stopping the clock in 22 minutes and 11 seconds.

Soon after, Deceuninck-Quick-Step's Yves Lampaert went down the ramp and he completed the course in 21 minutes and 58 seconds, starting as such a long wait on the hot seat. His teammate Kasper Asgreen was also fast, but he finished five seconds behind the Belgian national champion.

Then came the fight for the General Classification as time trial World Champion Rohan Dennis started his competition against the clock. The Australian completed the course in 22 minutes and 17 seconds, taking the sixth position of the day and he had to wait to see if he could win some time on the race leader Egan Bernal (Ineos).

The Colombian had some scary moments in the route as he almost crashed twice but he managed to control the damages and stopped the clock in 22 and 36 seconds, being able to maintain the Yellow Jersey. Dennis got some time back thanks to his time trial and he is now 22 seconds behind Bernal in the overall classification ahead of the last stage of the Swiss race.
