Bahrain-Merida's Rohan Dennis finished the Tour de Suisse in the second overall position. The rider tried his luck on the last day of the race but he couldn't get rid of the winner of the competition Egan Bernal.

The Australian time trial champion tried to surprise the Colombian rider of Ineos at the Queen stage of the race, but he always stayed at his wheel, which made it impossible for him to make up for the 19 seconds that separated them in the General Classification.

"It has been a good Tour de Suisse," said Dennis after the closing stage of the race. "I really didn’t expect to come here and get second overall. Moreover, a stage win and with Egan Bernal on the front on the Queen stage, taking a second place, was more than I’ve planned to do. But I have to say that a lot of work was done behind the scenes and even today.

"Today the team worked together with team Ineos and it looked like we were working with them, but we had a plan to try to take the win today and do everything was possible to do. But unfortunately, Bernal was too strong this week. Anyway, taking second overall, we can be really proud of that."
