Race Info, Preview, Live Video, Results, Photos and Highlights

The Tour of Romandie is known more for its narrow roads (some built by the Romans) but normally no serious mountains. However, this year's Stage 4 has two high mountain passes. There are always several good scenic shots each year of the great recreational cycling roads in western Switzerland, This one is from the 2008 race near Sierre.
