Tour de Romandie 2017 Route stage 2: Aigle - Bulle
Thursday, 27 April 2017 - At 136.5 kilometres, the 2nd stage of the Tour de Romandie travels from Aigle to Bulle. A perfect chance for sprinters to shine, yet they should keep in mind the last 2 kilometres are a false flat.
Originally the stage would have started in yesterday’s arrival place, ski resort Champéry, but the weather is cold with risk of snow. So the start will now be given in Aigle, in the valley below. The riders head north to hit the Attalens climb – 5.9 kilometres at 5%. Following an undulating section the next hurdle is similar – 6.2 kilometres at 4,8%, although the climb to Esmonts takes in ramps of up to 12%. The summit is crested at kilometre 64.7.
With some 50 kilometres left the riders reach the highest point of the day, at an elevation if 1,026 metres. It’s a 3.7 kilometres climb at 6.6% with steepest sections of 11%.
The drop runs to rolling roads all the way to the finish line. Presumably, the race will boil down to a bunch sprint on the slightly ascending arrival in Bulle.
The intermediate sprints give no bonus seconds, but the first three riders on the line take a bonus of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
