Fabulous result by our own former member Chris Juul Jensen in the Tour de Suisse on Tuesday winning stage 4 into Gstaad .
He claimed a brilliant solo stage win ,after 189km in the saddle he was the sole survivor of the breakaway.
And in epic wet conditions he had enough in the tank to hold off the much-reduced peloton.
Juul Jensen, who grew up in Ireland and began racing here with Sorrento, claimed a popular win by just eight seconds.
Behind him the sprint for the runner-up spot was won by Michael Matthews (Team Sunweb).
Watch the action here;
