With two consecutive stage victories, Demi Vollering (SD Worx-Protime) has established herself as the undisputed GC leader and looks poised to win the overall title at the Tour de Suisse Women, which would continue a winning streak that has seen her also win Vuelta España Femenina, Itzulia Women and Vuelta a Burgos.

"I approached the time trial like a normal race, knowing that normally, during a climb, I only get stronger. I rode myself completely empty in the last kilometres. I'm good at that. Luckily, it was enough for the win, and I was also able to gain time in the general classification," Vollering said in a team press release after winning the stage 2 time trial.
