Alpecin-Fenix's Mathieu van der Poel has repeated a stage victory in the Tour de Suisse and has climbed to the top of the General Classification.

The third stage of the Swiss race took the peloton between Lachen and Pfaffnau over a rolling course that featured two climbs of the third category. The escape of the day was formed by four riders: Claudio Imhof, Benjamin King, Remy Rochas and Mathias Frank, the latter being particularly active as the race went through hos childhood house in Roggliswil.

After the breakaway was caught, Julian Alaphilippe attacked on the last climb of the day and Van der Poel stayed at his wheel. Soon other riders joined the pair in the favourites' group.

The finish came down to a sprint in a reduced group and the Dutch national champion was the first one to cross the finish line ahead of Christophe Laporte and Alaphilippe and took the lead of the General Classification.
