Quick-Step Floors' Fernando Gaviria will return to action at the Tour de Romandie. The rider is back on the road after missing the Classics season.

Gaviria suffered an injury at the penultimate stage of Tirreno-Adriatico that took him out of the spring Classics. "Missing all those beautiful races was a blow for me, especially as I was in a good condition," the rider commented. "I was sad and frustrated, but this only fueled my motivation to work hard and come back to racing fully recovered.

"I’ve raced only once before in Switzerland, in my debut season with the pros, but this will be my first time in the Tour de Romandie and I’m excited and eager to join again my teammates and ease back into racing as I start my second half of the season, which I hope to be an injury-free and successful one."

This race will also mark the first time that Gaviria and Elia Viviani start together. Romandie will be the last race for the Italian before the Giro d'Italia.

Quick-Step Floors' complete roster for the Tour de Romandie (24th to 28th of April):

Eros Capecchi
Fernando Gaviria Rendon
James Knox
Davide Martinelli
Michael Mørkøv
Fabio Sabatini
Elia Viviani
