From the prologue in Aigle to the final time trial in Lausanne, going via Champéry and Bulle, with a looped stage in Payerne, then Domdidier-Leysin, and once again with 2 mountain finishes, the Tour de Romandie will be as tense as can be.
Two new jersey sponsors in one go: with the Banque du Léman for the best young rider and Net+ for the best climber, the cycling Tour de Romandie is getting a bit of a makeover! These newcomers who are joining Vaudoise Assurances (general leader), PMU romand (best sprinter) and Prodis(combativity), were announced during the presentation in Payerne of the thrilling route offered by the UCI World Tour event in 2017. From the prologue in Aigle to the final time trial in Lausanne, via the first mountain finish in Champéry, Bulle, then the looped stage in Payerne and the second mountain stage between Domdidier and Leysin, the next Tour de Romandie (25-30 April 2017) promises to keep its fans in suspense. Just like the fantastic 2016 event won by Nairo Quintana!
