Following Adam Yates (Orica-GreenEdge) and Mark Cavendish's (Omega-Pharma Quick-Step) respective overall and stage wins in the Tour of Turkey earlier this afternoon, Chris Froome (Sky) completed an exceptional day for British cycling by winning the time trial stage and the overall of the Tour de Romandie.

Going into the stage, Froome had just one second to make up on leader Simon Spilak (Katusha) to take the overall. Despite the Slovenian’s impressive record against the clock, he was no match for Froome, who took a whole half minute from him en route to winning the stage.
