Speaking after yesterday’s finish in Arlesheim, CSC’S Frank Schleck said that stage three of the Tour de Suisse was a very tough day, and one which gave an indication as to who will be in the running for the final yellow jersey. "It was a hard stage. This was a stage which was supposed to be flat, a sprinter's day, but it was much tougher than that! I think the last climb was much harder than anyone expected.

"It was a hard, hard day - it was up and down the whole time. On that last climb we have seen the really strong guys in the race. You will see them again after tomorrow."

Schleck finished fourth in the race last year and said he was quite happy with how he was going yesterday. "I was there [on the climb]. I think these short hills are not so good for me but I am looking forward to the big climbs. They suit me better," he added.
