Tour de Romandie 2018 Route stage 5: Mont-sur-Rolle - Geneva
Sunday, 29 April 2018 - The 5th and last stage of the Tour de Romandie goes from Mont-sur-Rolle to Geneva. The 181.8 kilometres route features three climbs, yet a fast finishers showdown is a likely scenario. That is, if their teams feel like controlling the race, otherwise it will be an opportunity for attackers.
Two years ago Geneva also served as an arrival place to the last stage in the Tour de Romandie. The race itself was played out on a mountainous course. A high-profile front group with among others Chris Froome, Romain Bardet, Wilco Kelderman, Michael Albasini and Andrey Amador distanced themselves from the peloton. On the shores of Lake Geneva the race boiled down to a group sprint with Albasini outpowering Amador and Kelderman. Nairo Quintana won the GC in that edition.
The last stage of this year’s Tour de Romandie starts in Mont-sur-Rolle, which lies 35 kilometres north of Geneva. The route sets off in the other direction for an large inland loop with three climbs. The first one leads to Mont-la-Ville (3.6 kilometres at 4.9%), the second to Suchy (1.9 kilometres at 6.4%) and the third to Thierrens (3 kilometres at 4.5%). In that last village there are still more than 100 kilometres to race, mostly on rolling roads. The final kilometres run along Lake Geneva and are flat.
The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
