The Tour de Romandie takes place over six days in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, and is a key build-up race for both the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France.

In recent times riders like Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome and Cadel Evans have all won this race on their way to Tour victory.

The event returned last year to its usual slot in the calendar for 2021, with Geraint Thomas beating Richie Porte and Fausto Masnada to first place in the general classification. 

Porte will return in 2022 to try and go one better in Switzerland, while Chris Froome (Israel Start-Up Nation) and Rui Costa (UAE Team Emirates) are the only other riders confirmed for the start-list so far.

The 2022 Tour de Romandie is set to be the 75th edition, and will take place from April 26 until May 1. The route typically features an elevation gain of roughly 12,000 metres, with a prologue and a concluding individual time trial also included.
