Dario Frigo wins Tour of Romandie

Italy's Dario Frigo, riding for the Fassa Bortolo team, had little trouble holding onto his overall lead during the final stage of the Tour of Romandie Sunday in Switzerland. Paris-Nice champion Frigo, 27, first took the overall lead during the race’s thrid stage, when he put 21 seconds on compatriot Paolo Savoldelli. Meanwhile, Saeco’s Mario Cippolini won a sprint finish to take the fifth stage, a 178km run between Saxon and Geneva. Copyright AFP 2001
