Peter Sagan (TotalEnergies) launched an early sprint on stage three of the Tour de Suisse to take his first victory in nine months. 

Heading into the final kilometre, the Slovakian had worked his way into prime position a couple of riders behind the front of the race. Andrea Pasqualon (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux) started leading his teammate Alexander Kristoff to the line, but Sagan started his sprint early and managed to hold on to the race win with his superior power in the closing stages.
