A challenging uphill final time trial saw Egan Bernal slip from third to fourth in the overall standings at the Tour de Suisse but the Colombian is hopeful that he has done enough to earn a spot on Ineos-Grenadiers' team for a GC tilt at the Tour de France, which starts on June 29 in Firenze.

Tom Pidcock claimed he had one of the best time trials of his career on stage 8 at the Tour de Suisse as he ended his race on a high. He finished fifth, 50 seconds slower than stage winner João Almeida but moved up to sixth place overall.
