Tour de Romandie 2017 Route stage 4: Domdidier – Leysin
Saturday, 29 April 2017 - Stage 4 in the Tour de Romandie amounts to 163.5 kilometres. The pilots tackle five climbs while racing from Domdidier and Leysin. Summit finish after a 4 kilometres climb at 7.2%.
After an undulating false flat of 42 kilometres the riders reach a plateau, which is undulating, too. The first serious vertical metres are tacled with some 70 kilometres done, yet it’s short ramp.
Almost 90 kilometres into the race the steepest climb of the day looms. The Jaunpass is a 6.5 kilometres ascent that is averaging 7.3%. Back in the valley the route starts to rise slightly and following a flat section the longest climb appears. No, not Stelvio-long and certainly not Stelvio-wearing. At 7.6 kilometres the Saanenmöser is averaging 4.4%. So that’s peanuts for the pros.
In the last 20 kilometres stage 4 in the Tour de Romandie takes in two peaks. The penultimate climb – Col du Pillon – is 7 kilometres at 5.2%, while the closing climb amounts to 4 kilometres at 7.2%. The first 3 kilometres are toughest – 7,7%, 8,9% and 8,2% – and before the top the ascent flattens out to 3.4%.
The intermediate sprints give no bonus seconds, but the first three riders on the line take a bonus of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
