Tour de Suisse 2024 Stage 8

UAE Team Emirates teammates Adam Yates and João Almeida battled it out in today’s largely uphill 15.7km time trial to Villars-sur-Ollon, with Yates winning out, as the British rider defied even his own expectations to hold off his teammate’s challenge.

At the first checkpoint, Yates had only shed seven seconds to Almeida, a deficit he turned into a lead on the way up, crossing the second checkpoint three seconds ahead. Almeida would end his day in the hot seat, having set a time of 33:24, 20 seconds quicker than anyone else.
