For the second time in its history Wanty-Groupe Gobert participates in Tour de Romandie (2.WT, 25-30/04). The Swiss stage race traditionally follows the Ardennes classics. It is an unmissable race in our preparation for the Tour de France. Six stages are on the program, starting on Tuesday April 25 with a prologue around Aigle and finishing Sunday April 30 with an individual time trial in Lausane. Two mountain stages permit our riders to compete against the best climbers in the world, with Chris Froome, Richie Porte, Ilnur Zakarin and Rigoberto Uran confirming their participation. This stage race is utterly important for our team because it takes place in the home country of our Swiss sponsor Atar.
