Kung takes Tour de Suisse lead



Switzerland's Stefan Kung will wear the first race leader's jersey at the Tour de Suisse after his BMC outfit won Saturday's opening team time-trial.

Swiss time-trial champion Kung was first over the line as his team finished the 18km race against the clock around Frauenfeld.

The result was a bonus for BMC's team leader Richie Porte who stole a march on his rivals for overall victory in the week-long stage race.

BMC finished in 20min 18sec to beat Sunweb by 20sec with Quick-Step third at 27sec.

Overall contenders, such as Movistar pair Nairo Quintana and Mikel Landa lost more than 30sec.

Sunday's second stage of the traditional Tour de France warm-up is a 155km run around Frauenfeld.
