Tour de Romandie 2015 Route stage 6: ITT in Lausanne

Tour de Romandie 2015 stage 6Sunday, May 3, 2015 - The Tour de Romandie concludes with an individual time trial in the streets of Lausanne. In 17.3 kilometres it’s a fight of rider and clock. Two climbing sections and the final 5 kilometres of the Tour de Romandie are all downhill.

It takes two climbing sections to rise to an elevation of 514 metres, reachef after 12 kilometres. The first section is 1,6 kilometre at 4.4% and following a 1 kilometre the climb continnues for 2.6 kilometres at 4%. Then the final 5 kilometres drop begins with the last 2 kilometres flattening out.

As of the 2012 edition the Tour de Romandie ends with an individual time trial. That year, Bradley Wiggins underlined his supremacy by winning both the stage and the GC. In 2013, Tony Martin took the time trial, but Chris Froome’s overall victory was not threatened (at all). In fact, he took time from his direct opponents Simon Spilak and Rui Costa.

Last edition, Froome took it another step further. He bested Tony Martin in the time trial with 1 second and won the GC in doing so. Just like in 2013 Simon Spilak was second and Rui Costa third.
