Sky's Chris Froome did not have the easiest week in Switzerland, but still left the Tour de Romandie with a stage win. He says he is not worried at all for the Tour de France despite losing to rival Nairo Quintana (Movistar).

Froome finished 38th overall, 21 minutes behind Quintana in the six-day stage race. However, he soloed away on the wet and cold queen stage to Villars-sur-Ollon.
