Michael Woods claimed victory on a dramatic queen stage 4 of the Tour de Romandie, as Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers) crashed in the final 50 metres of the final climb to squander the overall lead.

The Ineos rider lost control of his bike as the pair sprinted for the line at Thyon 2000, his hand slipping from his handlebar as he rose from the saddle.

The race concludes on Sunday with an individual time trial.

Cyclingnews will be bringing you full reports, results, news, interviews, and analysis throughout the race. Read on to find out how to watch Tour de Romandie via live stream, no matter your location, with ExpressVPN (opens in new tab).

The Tour de Romandie returns after a one-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, offering up a prologue, a final time trial, a big mountain top finish and three lumpy stages that will give roulers and sprinters their chance.

In its usual pre-Giro d'Italia slot, the Tour de Romandie has attracted a top-class field this season, with former Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers) wearing bib number one in the absence of defending champion Primoz Roglic, and other contenders such as Steven Kruijswijk (Jumbo-Visma), former Tour de Romandie winner Richie Porte (Ineos Grenadiers) and Chris Froome (Israel Start-Up Nation) on the start line.

The time trials will favour the likes of Rohan Dennis and Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers), Stefan Küng (Groupama-FDJ) and Stefan Bissegger (EF Education-Nippo), while sprint days will bring Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), Elia Viviani (Cofidis), Jake Stewart (Groupama-FDJ) and Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain Victorious) to the fore.

Miguel Angel Lopez makes his debut with his new Movistar Team, while Ion Izagirre (Astana Premier-Tech), Kenny Elissonde (Trek-Segafredo) and Fausto Masnada (Deceuninck-Quickstep) are other riders to watch on the climbs.
