Tour de Romandie 2017 Route stage 5: ITT in Lausanne

Tour de Romandie 2017 stage 5Sunday, 30 April 2017 - The last stage in the Tour de Romandie is an individual time trial of 18.3 kilometers in Lausanne. The route is marked by bends and a few uphill sectors, while the last kilometres are mostly downhill.

The ramp is located in Parc Olympique on the shores of Lake Geneva and the first 7 kilometres are the toughest. Via the city centre the route runs to Parc de Sauvabelin, which is the highest point of the ITT. To get there the riders have to send their bikes through corners while climbing more than 300 vertical metres.

After leaving Parc de Sauvabelin a 4 kilometres intermezzo leads to the final part. Again 7 kilometres – yet a lot easier, mostly in descent and hardly any bends. The last 1.5 kilometre is as straight as a line. The finish is at Place de la Navigation, also on the shores op Lake Geneva.

The 2015 Tour de Romandie concluded also with an ITT in Lausanne that was won by Tony Martin. However, the race was played out on a different route. Ilnur Zakarin, who came in third, took the overall win.
