Tour de Romandie starts for Tyler Hamilton
Tyler Freaking Hamilton starts at the 6-day Tour of Romandie today, as he seems to be coming into peak season fitness.
Tyler Hamilton, who rode through last year's Tour de France with a broken collarbone, is favourite for the six-day Tour de Romandie which starts Tuesday.
The American is using the event as a buildup to this year's Tour de France when he will be one of the main challengers to five-times winner Lance Armstrong.
Hamilton was 9th at Sunday's Liege-Bastogne-Liege, but he's better suited to the multi-day tours.
Jorg Jaksche is looking to return to racing 10 days after an elbow injury.
