Geraint Thomas Wins the Tour De Romandie

INEOS Grenadiers (Switzerland) - Press Release: Tour de Romandie stage five: Fribourg › Fribourg TT (16.19 km).

Geraint Thomas led home a superb INEOS Grenadiers 1-2 at Tour de Romandie as Richie Porte moved up to second with an impressive time trial performance on the final stage.

Thomas put in a measured ride in Fribourg to overhaul leader Mike Woods (Israel Start-Up Nation) and secure the overall victory from his teammate by 33 seconds.

Starting the day in sixth, Porte put in a strong performance in changeable conditions to move up to second overall and secure back-to-back World Tour stage race second places.

Thomas finished third on the final stage, not pushing for the stage win, knowing that his aim was to overturn a 11 second gap to race leader Woods. The Welshman looked on course to achieve this at the intermediate check point, where he led the field.

Overall standings:

  1. Geraint Thomas (INEOS Grenadiers) 17:59:57
  2. Richie Porte (INEOS Grenadiers) +36"
  3. Fausto Masnada (Deuceuninck- Quick Step)
  4. Marc Soler (Movistar) +39"
  5. Michael Woods (Israel Start-Up Nation) +43"
