That's all from our live coverage of stage 2 of the Tour de Suisse. Join us again tomorrow for live coverage of stage 3.
Tomorrow's stage is a nailed-on sprint stage, with just two third-category climbs on the road from Flamatt to Murten. Look out for Sagan and Matthews to battle for the win – and the race lead.
Asgreen is also the best young rider, while Rohan Dennis retains in the points jersey. Imhof takes the mountains jersey for his efforts in the break today.

Still only one rider apiece for Sunweb and CCC at the head of the peloton. Bora don't have anyone up there.

It's a twisting, technical descent, but the roads are in good shape and it's a fast one.

Elsewhere, Jakob Fuglsang has sealed his Dauphiné victory. Stay tuned for the report and results here.
Merhawi Kudus (Astana) attacks the descent and he has a few riders on his wheel. They're quickly caught by the peloton though.

Astana take it up on the front of the peloton
His advantage has suddenly dropped to 35 seconds. I was going to say he looks good to last up the next climb at least, but now it looks a big ask.
There's around 10km to the top of the next climb for Imhof now.
Imhof has a mechanical and has to change his bike without any drama. The gap goes down to 1:20 as a result.

Imhof passes through the line and takes the bell for the last lap. There's still over 50km to go though.

Imhof takes a drink from his team car as he reaches the valley once again.
A few riders are dropping from the back of the peloton, who are still on the climb. Shouldn't be a problem with 70km to race though. Imhof's lead is down to 1:45 now.
Over at the Dauphiné, Adam Yates has surprisingly abandoned. He was running in second place and there are still 50km to race on the final stage, so a bit of a shock. Follow live here.

Read our report on yesterday's stage, along with a photo gallery and full results, here.
Yesterday's opening stage was a 9.5km time trial around the same town. Rohan Dennis took the win, his first for Bahrain-Merida and first since taking the rainbow jersey last season. He's in the race lead but could lose it today with Matthews and Sagan lurking a few seconds down.
The two climbs aren't too tough, meaning that which fastmen make it to the finish depends on how hard they're raced.
It could be a day for a break or for classics specialists, especially those with a sprint like Greg Van Avermaet, Michael Matthews or Peter Sagan.
Today's stage is another around the town of Langnau im Emmental in Bern. This time it's a road stage featuring three circuits and six second-category climbs (two climbs repeated three times).
