2022 Tour de Romandie – stage 2 preview


Unfortunately, the last kilometers of first stage saw a big crash involving some favorites, for the stage or general classification.

Weird enough, Ethan Hayter was at the back of the peloton for a long time while his teammates were pulling the peloton, without it being known whether he had a mechanical or health issues. Maybe we will learn more by the start of the second stage. He crossed the line last at 14’31” .

Ion Izagirre, an other favorite was also involved is down by more than 10 minutes.

A pleasant weather and a hilly 169 km for those guys, with a flat finish designed for a sprinter. But first the sprinters need to survive the climbs and secondly their teams need to work to hold the break-away on the rope.

Lulu: This will be a hard challenge, but if he survives the climbs of the day, Gaviria can win the final sprint.

CC2004: A hilly stage of 168.2km that should end in a sprint. Ethan Hayter can make it over the climbs and got a good sprint. Francisco Galvan was 3rd at GP Marseillaise and consistently inside the top 15 on sprint stages.

Mufcfaan: Quick-Step will work hard all day to seal it with their new sprinting sensation, Ethan Vernon.
