The classics are over, now we make a welcome(?) return to stage racing with the 6 day Tour of the French speaking part of my adoptive country.

This race was greatly supported by Andy Rihs, so expect some tributes along the way.

Start List

Prologue (Tues): 4km lumpy ITT in Fribourg
Stage 1 (Weds): Rolling day from Fribourg to Delémont
Stage 2 (Thur): Jura day from Delémont to Yverdon-les-Bains

    Thought I’d be different and pick Roglic expecting everyone to go for Porte but you’ve all messed that plan up!
