THE FOURTH-BIGGEST ROAD STAGE RACE IN THE WORLD, THE Tour de Suisse, is one of two warm-ups for the Tour de France. Its grueling mountain passes prepare the world’s best roadies for the steep stages of the TDF. This year’s start list included 2012 TDF winner Bradley Wiggins, time-trialist Fabian Cancellara, sprinters like Peter Sagan and Mark Cavendish and one mountain biker with a sweet tail- whip. In only his second professional road race, Swiss cross-country racer Nino Schurter held his own, launching an attack, sprinting to two Top-10 finishes and earning Stage 3’s most active rider award.
