Spain?s Riccardo Serrano gave his troubled Fuji-Servetto ProTour team their third win of the season at the Tour de Romandie on Wednesday after being part of a three-rider break that held off the peloton in the finale of the shortened stage.

The first road stage of this year?s race was supposed to be from Montreux to Fribourg but heavy snow on the Col du Juan forced the organisers to shorten the stage to just 87.6km. The riders were given lunch at the UCI headquarters in Aigle before starting the stage in the early afternoon.
