TORREY, Utah (AP) Michael Schar of BMC Racing Team survived a six-man breakaway over Boulder Mountain and then time-trialed to victory Tuesday in the second stage of the Tour of Utah.

Schar was part of the lead group for the entirety of the 131-mile stage, the longest of this year's race. After cresting the final climb, the reigning Swiss road race champion managed to hold off the peloton by 2 seconds - roughly 20 feet - at the finish line.

Schar then collapsed in a joyful heap on the pavement under the town's famous cottonwoods.

SmartStop's Jure Kocjan finished second for the second straight day, winning a field sprint for the podium. Serghei Tvetcov of Jelly Belly finished third.

The third stage Wednesday takes riders 118 miles before finishing in Tooele, Utah.
