- Tour de Romandie: Due to bad weather conditions (snow in the mountains), today's Stage 1 has been cut in half.

The stage has been shortened to 87.6km from the original 176.2km. (You can view an animation of the originally planned Stage 1 route here, quite a winding parcours in the mountains.) The peloton is expected at the finish in Fribourg at around 17:00 CET (11am U.S. Eastern). Tour de Romandie live video streaming on cycling.tv is scheduled to begin at 16:00 CET (10am U.S. Eastern).
