At the Tour de Suisse, the battle of the leaders began with a dog fight. The Briton Adam Yates walked his animal with a yellow leash on Saturday evening, in front of journalists and a few friends, on the eve of the decisive time trial. Still in runner’s outfit, in the ingenuity of a walker under the streetlights. He – the dog – sported a cotton coat and a smile that was very happy to be here. This is Zoe, a purebred Samoyed. The Portuguese João Almeida had left his at home – bulging eyes, tender gaze, a lovely sausage dog. He keeps photos of his partner warm in his phone.

No animals on the races. The bicycle, Almeida believes, is a serious and dignified object. He would have liked to win the Tour de Suisse. Against Adam Yates, his teammate from Team UAE-Emirates. There a duel ignites. A fake nonchalant versus a fake tough guy. Two real characters. The number 2 place behind Tadej Pogacar in the Tour de France is at stake. Only them remained after a week with all their fangs out. The third in the Tour de Suisse, the Dane Mattias Skjelmose (Lidl-Trek), fails at 3 minutes.
