A "super skinny" Geraint Thomas suffered in the cold of Thursday's Tour de Suisse sixth stage, according to Team Sky sports director Gabriel Rasch, and lost 51 seconds to the leaders.

Thomas slid behind the favourites group with two kilometres remaining, after another leader Tejay van Garderen (BMC Racing) had already lost contact. Wilco Kelderman (LottoNL-Jumbo) took over the lead and Warren Barguil (Giant-Alpecin) and Andrew Talansky (Cannondale) moved into second and third overall, respectively.
