Nieve stays vigilant in Switzerland

Mikel Nieve enjoyed a calm day in the saddle ahead of tomorrow's decisive individual time trial.

Nieve, as well as his key team-mates, finished inside the peloton to stay ninth overall. The stage was again taken out by the simply awe-inspiring Peter Sagan on the slightly uphill finish to the line in Bischofszell after a 198,5km ride from Wittnau. Nieve was seen near the front towards the end to avoid any potential trouble and cruised home in 28th.

The team remain atop the team standings with three days to go.

Stage six results:
  • (1, Peter Sagan (Liquigas), 4:30:08)
  • 21, Gorka Izagirre, 0:03
  • 28, Mikel Nieve, s.t.
  • 46, Mikel Astarloza, s.t.
  • 60, Rubén Pérez, 0:15
  • 116, Igor Antón, 4:52
  • 121, Romain Sicard, s.t.
  • 134, Pablo Urtasun, 9:43
