Switzerland's Camenzind wrests leader's yellow jersey from Ullrich

Camenzind celebrates with two Swiss beauties


Switzerland's Oscar Camenzind is slipping into the leader's yellow jersey for the penultimate, ninth stage of the country's biggest cycling event, the Tour de Suisse.

He'll be hoping to retain his lead as the tour enters its ninth stage, a 150 kilometre route from Sankt Moritz to Arosa. If he does, he is almost certain to win the whole Tour de Suisse.

Camenzind managed to wrest the jersey from Germany's Jan Ullrich during the eighth stage on Tuesday. The 166 kilometre stage led from Locarno to La Punt, in eastern Switzerland.

Ullrich lost two whole minutes off his overall standings during the Albula-Pass segment of the race, giving the edge to Camenzind, who was previously third overall.

The day's stage itself was won by Italy's Stefano Garzelli. He completed the race in just over four hours, 40 minutes.
