Rohan Dennis Confident About Tour de Romandie Form

“The form for the rest of this tour is definitely there,"

Rohan Dennis Tour De Romandie

Rohan Dennis was so close to winning the prologue of Tour de Romandie, he was just four seconds behind and a podium spot away. Although he got the second place, he delivered a spectacular show of form and tactics which will be more than enough for the upcoming event.

Dennis was busy chasing after the eventual winner Ethan Hayter (Ineos Grenadiers) on the streets of Lausanne. While chasing, he had a clear target, he had to maintain an average speed of 52km per hour to beat on the 5.12km course of Tour de Romandie.

During the initial stages of the race, it looked like Hayter was well within reach but he wasn’t. Even the two-time world champion in the time trial division could not catch up to him this time. Rohan Dennis said in a team statement:

I didn’t take the last corners well. I gave everything in the first few kilometres. I was a little dizzy at the end of the prologue, but I think Ethan was hard to beat today.

Reflecting back to last year, Rohan Dennis was the one that won the Tour de Romandie prologue in 2021. With that, he was also the only person to have completed the course in under six minutes (He completed in 5:56), Hayter was his teammate back then. Dennis said:

I have to be satisfied with my race. Of course I would have preferred to win but I can’t blame myself and I gave everything. Today one rider was stronger. Hats off to Ethan.

Team Jumbo-Visma has only one goal for Tour of Romandie, grab some stage wins and have a good GC. This goal has been conveyed by sports director Merjin Zeeman himself. They may not have the victory this time, or even a podium spot, Dennis is confident about his form which will carry him for the rest of the Tour.

The form for the rest of this tour is definitely there.

The Tour of Romandie continues and both Jumbo-Visma and Rohan Dennis are gearing up for the rest of the event. Will we be able to see that spark again?
