Tour de Romandie 2018 Route prologue: Fribourg - Fribourg

Tuesday, 24 April 2018 - The Tour de Romandie starts with a prologue in Fribourg. Last year's overall was won by Richie Porte ahead of Simon Yates and Primoz Roglic.

Fribourg is a regular host to the Tour de Romandie. Four years ago the town served as the hub of a circuit race through the surrounding area, which culminated in a three-up sprint with home-rider Michael Albasini outgunning Thomas Voeckler and Jan Bakelants. In 2015, the Tour de Romandie’s 4th stage arrived in the town with one of the largest contiguous medieval centers in Europe. Once again, a home-rider took the stage honours as Stefan Küng soloed to victory. The following day the Queen Stage ran from Fribourg to Champex and Thibaut Pinot and climbed to the stage win.

This time, the Tour de Romandie begins in Fribourg with a prologue. In last year’s prologue Fabio Feline outpowered Alex Dowsett and Alexander Edmondson on a 4.8 kilometres course in Aigle.
