Full list of riders taking part in the 2017 Tour de Romandie (April 25-30)

TAGS:

The 2017 WorldTour continues on Tuesday, April 25, with the start of the six-stage Tour de Romandie in Switzerland.

Last year’s winner, Nairo Quintana (Movistar) is absent, but two-time winner Chris Froome (Team Sky) will be there as he continues to build-up for the Tour de France in July.

Froome will face former team-mate Richie Porte (BMC), 2015 winner Ilnur Zakarin (Katusha-Alpecin) and Simon Yates (Orica-Scott) among those vying for overall glory.

Meanwhile, flatter stages will be contested by a selection of sprinters that includes Briton Ben Swift (UAE Team Emirates) and Italian Elia Viviani (Team Sky).
