On-bike camera footage from stage three of the 2016 Tour de Suisse on Monday gives an insight into the experience of the riders.

The day started off in the dry, with the footage showing a relaxed world champion Peter Sagan (Tinkoff) and Fabian Cancellara (Trek-Segafredo) chatting away on the start line in Grosswangen.

As the stage got underway, the heavens opened and the challenge for the riders was to stay upright and avoid the spray being kicked up from the rider in front’s back wheel – a problem clearly shown in the footage.

>>> Peter Sagan attacks to win stage three of the Tour de Suisse

An original eight-man break was caught by Michael Albasini (Orica-GreenEdge), who then attacked with fellow Swiss rider Silvan Dillier (BMC). The pair were then caught by world champion Peter Sagan (Tinkoff), who made an astounding attack from the peloton over the final climb to catch the lead duo.

Albasini and Dillier simply had to answer to Sagan’s turn of pace in the finale in Rheinfelden, allowing the Slovakian to take his 13th TdS stage win and with it the overall race lead. Tinkoff team owner Oleg Tinkov was on hand at the finish to give a soggy Sagan a hug for his efforts.

The Tour de Suisse continues on Tuesday with another stage that should suit Sagan, a 193km trip from Rheinfelden to Champagne. The rain had already started to fall heavily before the stage started.
