Tour de Romandie 2018, Matthews wins the prologue

Michael Matthews (Team Sunweb) wins the prologue and wears on his shoulders the first overall jersey of 2018 Tour de Romandie. The Australian stopped the clock at 5 minutes and 33 seconds after brief stage 1 over 4 kilometers of racing in Fribourg. Matthews in this way keeps moving forward on the path that leads him to be coated with the label of the ideal all-rounder. Swiss Tom Bohli (BMC Racing) finishes in second only by one spare second. In order of rank Primoz Roglic (Lotto Nl – Jumbo) and Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) crossed the finish line with the same time to Bohli. European time trial champion Victor Campenaerts (Lotto – Soudal) completes stage 1 top-5 ranking by finishing the prologue with 5 extra seconds to the winner. Of course Michael Matthews is the first holder of the leader’s jersey.
