Aleksandr Vlasov wins final time trial and takes overall victory at Tour de Romandie

Vlasov fastest and takes the overall victory from Rohan Dennis who finishes outside the top 10 on the final stage

The final stage featured a time trial starting in Aigle and running along a flat course for the first 5 km before the riders had to contest the final 10 km on an uphill terrain to the finish town of Villars.

The fight for the overall win would be decided, as the time gaps between the favorites were small. Aleks Vlasov, who was 18 seconds behind the then leader Rohan Dennis before the stage, had a good chance for a podium position today and he certainly did not disappoint.

Aleks started third last and set the best intermediate time before crossing the finish line with an outstanding time of 33:40:33, some 31 seconds faster than the second-placed Simon Geschke. With this stage win, Aleks also secured the overall victory, his second GC win for the team from Raubling and his first WorldTour stage and GC victory.

BORA - hansgrohe concluded the Tour de Romandie very successfully with Felix Großschartner's 3rd place in the prologue, a stage win by Sergio Higuita, as well as a second place on stage 4, today's win in the individual time trial and the general classification with Aleks Vlasov.

Rohan Dennis (Jumbo-Visma), who led the race at the start of the day, struggled with the steep gradients of the time-trial course and finished two minutes and 12 seconds behind Vlasov, dropping to ninth on GC.
