The 2017 Tour de Romandie starts in Aigle with a 4.8 kilometres prologue before the 1st stage travels in almost 170 kilometres from Aigle to Champéry. This is the first mountain top finish.
Aigle hosted the Tour de Romandie before. In 2014 Simon Spilak bested Chris Froome in a sprint-a-deux after a a mountain stage. But eventually the reigning Tour de France champion took the overall with a half a minute lead over the Slovenian.
Stage 2 travels from Champéry to a local round in Bulle. The route offers chances for both sprinters and escapees.
Friday the 28th of April will see stage 3 being played out on a circuit in and around Payerne. Perfect for fast men.
Stage 4 is on climbers territory again. After leaving Domdidier the route travels through Broc and Zweisimmen to take the 1,546 metres Col du Pillon before a summit finish in Leysin.
At 18.3 kilometres, the closing stage brings a hilly individual time trial in Lausanne.
Nairo Quintana claimed the overall in the 2016 Tour de Romandie, thus succeeding Ilnur Zakarin. Chris Froome took the GC both in 2013 and 2014.
