Chris Froome (Israel Start-Up Nation) came into the Tour de Romandie with question marks hanging over him and with the hope of seeing signs he’s on his way back to the level that won him the Tour de France four times. After finishing the race in 96th place on Sunday, there were no real answers but he retains that hope as he builds towards this year’s Tour.

Froome placed 109th out of 120 starters in the final-day 16km time trial in Fribourg, finishing 3:23 down on the winning time of Rémi Cavagna (Deceuninck-QuickStep).
