PARCOURS

The augmented races representing real efforts will be held on sections of the Tour de Suisse 2021 map, over June 6th - 12th, just as the actual pro race.

 

June 6 |Tour de Suisse |RACE 1 | TT-FRAUENFELD (Stage 1) | 10.6 km, 57 m of altitude

The time trial around Frauenfeld promises pure excitement. The prologue of the Tour de Suisse 2021 winds through the town of 25,000 residents, challenging cyclists with its technical curves. Only the best time trialists will make it to the podium. The stage is ridden without drafting.

 

June 7 |Tour de Suisse |RACE 2 |NUFENENPASS (Stage 6) | 26.6 km, 1182 m of alt.

With this starting point, one thing is for sure: an Alpine crossing is unavoidable. Fiesch, located in the Upper Valais, is in the neighborhood of the legendary Grimsel, Furka and Nufenen passes. The 6th stage of the Tour de Suisse heads over Switzerland’s highest road pass, the Nufenen Pass – a warm-up, as it were.

 

June 10 | Tour de Suisse | RACE 3 | LEUKERBAD (Stage 5) | 33.5 km, 1565 m of alt.

The Col du Pillon is a pass in the canton of Vaud. It is located between Les Diablerets and Gsteig. The pass is the first major hurdle of the 5th stage at 1546 meters above sea level. The route is a high tower above the village that goes across the Bernese Alps at an altitude of 2270 meters above sea level connecting Leukerbad with Kandersteg. This historic pass is truly called “the classic among the classics” for the incredible views it offers.

 

June 11 | Tour de Suisse | RACE 4 | LUKMANIERPASS (Stage 6) | 37.8 km, 973 m of alt.

In Stage 6, for the 36th time in the history of the Tour de Suisse, the race crosses the famous Lukmanier Pass before finishing in Disentis-Sedrun. The pass leads you from the north into the sunniest Ticinese valley, the “Valle del Sole”, officially called the Blenio Valley. With its mountain pastures and breathtaking panoramas, it lies embedded in an officially acknowledged, exceptional natural landscape with biological, geomorphological and historical-cultural treasures. It has been used for centuries and was Barbarossa's favorite way through the Alps.

 

June 12 | Tour de Suisse | RACE 5 | OBERALPPASS (Stage 7) | 11.8 km, 634 m of alt.

The high alpine region around Disentis Sedrun with its impressive alpine passes offers optimal conditions for challenging routes and top sporting performances. As a highlight, cyclists and spectators alike can enjoy the unique spectacle of racing alongside the Rhine. 

 

Europe, USA and Asia times are covered.
