Team Jumbo-Visma in control in second stage Tour de Romandie

Team Jumbo-Visma has ended the second stage of the Tour de Romandie well. In the 168 km stage around Échallens, Rohan Dennis' leader's jersey was never in danger.

Four riders broke away immediately. Team Jumbo-Visma led the chase all day and caught the leading group about 25 kilometres from the finish. Even when the pace increased in the hilly final, the yellow and black brigade kept classification leader Rohan Dennis well in front. Ethan Hayter eventually won the bunch sprint.

Sports director Merijn Zeeman looked back with satisfaction. "It was good for us that a group of four got away. We didn't get any help controlling the race today, so Michel Hessmann rode in front all day. In the final, INEOS took over. There was a big acceleration on the last two climbs. We stayed with the team around Rohan until the last kilometre. For us, the day went well. I have seen a strong team."
