This Monday, Biniam Girmay found back the road to victory by winning the second stage of the Tour de Suisse in an authoritarian sprint defeating Arnaud Démare and Wout Van Aert.
This second stage was promised for the sprinters, however, containing 2000 climbing meters and the Oberarig climb (3 km at 5%) situated 20 kilometer before the finish line. Even though it was climbed at a good pace, it didn’t provoke damage so 120 riders headed to the finish in Nottwil.
Biniam Girmay launched with 250 meters to go, passing Wout Van Aert to take his second win of the season after his success in the Volta Valenciana. Two months after his bad crash in the Tour of Flanders, he offered the team of Jean-François Bourlart its thirteenth victory of the season and the very first one in the Tour de Suisse.
