For two riders of Astana Proteam, Tanel Kangert and Pello Bilbao the Suisse race became the final preparation step for the Giro d’Italia.
- Today, in time trial I tried to do a good race, but without taking too much risk. In only five days we will start at the Giro d’Italia, so this is the most important thing right now. I hope, our team can show itself and get some strong results in Italy, - said Tanel Kangert.
The winner of the ITT in Lausanne became Spovenian rider Primož Roglic, who stopped the clock at 24 minutes and 58 seconds. Tanel Kangert lost to him 1 minute and 37 seconds. Pello Bilbao was with two more seconds slower.
Australian rider Richie Porte became the overall winner of the Tour de Romandie 2017. Pello Bilbao is the best Astana performer with 24th position.
