LA CHAUX-DE-FONDS, Switzerland (AP) -- Bradley Wiggins won a sprint finish on the second stage of the six-day Tour de Romandie on Wednesday and took the overall leader's yellow jersey.

The British pre-race favorite made his move near the finish line and held off Lieuwe Westraof the Netherlands by a bike's length in 4 hours, 50 minutes, 23 seconds.

Paulo Tiralongo of Italy was third in the same time after a 115-mile trek from Morges to La Chaux-de-Fonds.

Wiggins used a 10-second time bonus for the stage win to lead overall by 7 seconds from Team Sky colleague Michael Rogers of Australia. Dutchman Bauke Mollema trails Wiggins by 9 seconds in third.

Wiggins gave Sky its second straight victory after Geraint Thomas won Tuesday's prologue.
