Chris Froome finished off the Tour de Romandie with ninth place in the final stage time trial.

The Brit clocked a time of 25 minutes and 44 seconds over the tough, 17.8-kilometre course in Lausanne. That effort was 46 seconds back on an impressive winning benchmark set by Primoz Roglic (LottoNL-Jumbo).

After crossing the line Froome said: “If I look at the objective that I came here with – obviously to get a good week of racing to take me on in terms of my preparation towards the Tour – I’m really happy to have got through the week, first of all upright, secondly without getting too cold in quite difficult conditions here.

“Of course I would like to have been up there yesterday on the queen stage. Truth is I got to the final climb and just didn’t have it. There’s a lot of work for me still to do ahead of the Tour de France, but I’m confident I know how to get the job done.”
