2007 Tour de Romandie to start in Fribourg

Next year's Tour de Romandie will see its riders off in Fribourg instead of Geneva, because of the traditional demonstrations held on the starting date of the stage race, May 1. The organisers, who announced the parcours at the end of last week, also had to avoid the city for the race finale, as Geneva hosts an international marathon on May 6.

Nevertheless, the flavour of the ProTour race will be unchanged, as it will unfold in the Swiss Alps with a queen's stage on the penultimate day, finishing in Morgins. General Classification may be decided on that fifth stage, as well as during the traditional last time trial in Lausanne.
