Four Team Sky riders held station in the top 10 at the Tour de Romandie as the day’s breakaway stayed clear at the finish.
"So far we've only had one really big GC day which was the opening prologue, but the next two days now should be key, starting with the time trial tomorrow.
"It's a tough course with nowhere to hide and no one to help you. Roglic will be tough to beat but G is going well, and it's great to see Rosa up there. Egan is really impressive but we have to remember he is in his first race back from injury. Jonathan is the one who is probably least suited to the course, as more of a pure TT guy, but I'm sure he will put in a good ride."
