    Switzerland's Stefan Kung of FDJ became the first home rider to take a stage on the Digital Swiss 5 when he dominated race two to win by almost a minute from Italy's Filippo Ganna in a virtual time trial around Frauenfeld.

    It was very much a home win for the Swiss rider as Kung lives less than a kilometre from the finish line in Frauenfeld. Pre-race favourite Greg van Avermaet finished fourth, losing track of Ganna around the 20km mark and then being edged out of third in a nip-and-tuck battle with Australia's Michael Matthews.

    Great Britain's Ian Stannard of Ineos had technical problems at the start but recovered to finish 48th, one place ahead of fellow-Brit Grabriel Cullaigh of Movistar, but Chris Lawless of Ineos failed to finish.

    The one rider to compete for a second successive day, Michi Schar, came in ninth for the Swiss national team, 24 hours after finishing 12th on the opening stage for his pro team CCC.
