Tour de Romandie: Chris Froome and Adam Yates set up double victory
Sunday 04 May 2014
Chris Froome goes into the final day of the Tour de Romandie today one second behind leader Simon Spilak after the fourth stage was won by breakaway rider Michael Albasini.
The Swiss rider won his third stage by comfortably beating Thomas Voeckler into second, while Jan Bakelants was third.
Spilak and Team Sky's Froome, who rose to the top of the standings by finishing first and second respectively on stage three, followed nine seconds later. Froome is firm favourite to win the race for the second year running, with only an 18.5km time trial to contest on stage five.
Elia Viviani outsprinted Mark Cavendish to win stage seven of the Tour of Turkey in Izmir as Britain's Adam Yates avoided a flurry of late crashes to retain his overall lead of the race. Yates ensured he kept his slender, one-second advantage over Rein Taaramae going into today's 121km rolling final stage in Istanbul. The 21-year-old from Bury, who rides for Orica-GreenEdge, took the lead by winning stage six.
