Race notes

  • Stage 4 of the 2023 Tour de Suisse runs from Monthey to Leukerbad and is 152.5km long.

  • The second, very mountainous half, should see the GC battle ignite again

  • Stage 3 winner Mattias Skjelmose (Trek-Segafredo) leads by 17 seconds on Remco Evenepoel (Soudal-QuickStep) and 24 on Juan Ayuso (UAE Team Emirates). Another three riders are less than a minute on GC.

144 kilometres to go

Kasper Asgreen (Soudal-QuickStep) and Maciej Bodnar (TotalEnergies ) are both former multiple national time trial champions and both chance their arm, with an equal lack of success. The bunch is still together. For now.

Reports of two DNS this morning, both from Astana Qazaqstan: Vadim Pronskiy and Alexey Lutsenko, both ill. For Lutsenko, set to be a leader again for Astana in the upcoming Tour de France - where he won a mountainous stage back in 2020 - this is a setback.
