Tour de Romandie 2016: The Route
The Tour de Romandie is played out from Tuesday, April 26, to Sunday, May 1. The race offers two time trials, two top finishes and two chances for the fast men. Cyclingstage.com takes a closer look at the route of the Tour de Romandie 2016.
The Tour de Romandie begins with a 3,95 kilometres prologue featuring 75 metres of climbing, while the 1st stage brings the first chance for the sprinters after a race with four modest climbs. In stage 2 the peloton heads for Morgins. The 173.9 kilometres course concludes with a wto stage ascent at 22 kilometres.
In stage 3 it’s chrono-race time again. The second time trial is played out on a 15.1 kilometres course in Sion, featuring a climb with steepest sectors at around 10%.
At 173.2 kilometres, the Queen Stage leads from Conthey to Villars. The toil up to the ski-resort is an irregular 15.8 kilometres climb. The average gradient is 5.3%, yet the middle section is a lot steeper than that. All in all, the route features five cols, three in category 1 and two in category 3.
The closing stage to Geneva should be for the sprinters.
Chris Froome took the 6-day stage-race in the French speaking part of Switzerland in 2013 and 2014, while Ilnur Zakarin is title holder in the Tour de Romandie.
