Simon Spilak is last down the ramp at the Tour de Romandie prologue, with Chris Froome two riders before him on the 3.95km course

Two-time champion Chris Froome (Team Sky) will be the third to last rider down the ramp at the Tour de Romandie prologue on Tuesday afternoon, heading off just after former teammate Richie Porte (BMC) at 16.27.

Great Britain will almost certainly have a leader of the race at some point, with Mark McNally (Wanty-Groupe Gobert) the first rider out of the start house at 13.50.

Katusha have decided to send defending champion Ilnur Zakarin out as their first rider, with Simon Spilak the last rider out of the gate at 16.29.

Many of the top time triallists in the race head out in the final 20 riders, including Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin) and Bob Jungels (Etixx-Quick Step), but Jos Van Emden (LottoNL-Jumbo) and Jérome Coppel (IAM) are also ones to watch over the 3.95km course.
