Tour de Romandie 2017 Route stage 3: Criterium in Payerne
Friday, 28 April 2017 - The route of the 3rd stage of the Tour de Romandie takes in four different loops around Payerne. The race comes down to a hilly ride of 187 kilometres.
After the start the riders set out for the first loop, which runs in south-westerly direction. At an elevation of 679 metres, they reach the highest point of the day, yet there are no KOM-points in the first loop.
The second loop runs to the north-east. Mount Vully is halfway, crested at kilometre 81.7 after a 2.8 kilometres climbing at 6.3% with steepest sectors of 12%.
Back in Payerne it’s time for the first passage on the finish line. At 35.5 kilometres, the next loop is the shortest, yet it features most KOM-climbs – namely two. The first one is 2.6 kilometres at 5.8% with ramps up to 20%, while the second climb is 1.6 kilometre at 8.1% with ramps of up to 22%. So that’s punchy stuff.
The last loop takes in 41.5 kilometres and one climb – 2.6 kilometres at 5.9%. On the top there are almost 30 kilometres left to race. Mostly on rolling roads but the last 5 kilometres are pan-flat.
The intermediate sprints give no bonus seconds, but the first three riders on the line take a bonus of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
