Brandon Rivera sprinted to a fine fourth place at the Tour de Suisse as the Grenadiers emerged through a hectic finish to stage two.

The Colombian helped to position Tom Pidcock during a fast run-in but was able to open up and extend his sprint all the way to the line, coming home to secure his first WorldTour top-five finish.

Pidcock came in just behind in seventh, with the stage win going to Bryan Coquard (Cofidis). Despite a late split in the bunch, Egan Bernal was able to finish safely in the peloton on the same time as the leaders. 

Ethan Hayter had been moving into position to contest the sprint but was held up behind a crash with 1.5km to go. The Brit was able to resume and safely finish the stage.
