Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) moved into second place on GC at the 2015 Tour de Suisse, after attacking on the final climb of the medium mountains of stage two to finish in a lead group of riders, including race leader Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin).

Kristijan Durasek (Lampre-Merida) took advantage of the toing-and-froing between the GC hopefuls, including Jakob Fuglsang (Astana), Daniel Moreno (Katusha) and Thibaut Pinot (FDJ), as well as Thomas, to attack with 800m to go and take his first WorldTour victory.
