Tour de Romandie 2018 Route stage 2: Delémont – Yverdon-les-Bain
Thursday, 26 April 2018 - The 2nd stage of the Tour de Romandie travels from Delémont to Yverdon-les-Bains. The 173.9 kilometres route features 1,988 vertical metres and two climbs.
Once the flag is dropped the riders face the first climb. The Col des Rangiers is 8.4 kilometres and averaging 4.8%. The KOM is located at 856 metres and following a short drop the route continues on a false flat to an elevation of almost 1,000 metres. At kilometre 84 the riders drop down for a stint trough the valley before tackling the second and last climb of the day. The Col des Etroits is a 5.7 kilometres pass with an average gradient of 6%. Two editions ago the climb was included in the Tour de Romandie, yet was canceled due to poor weather. The Etroits peaks 1,152 metres.
Arrival place Yverdon-les-Bains lies on Lake Neuchâtel, almost 20 kilometres from the top of the Col des Etroits. Following the first passage on the line the race concludes with a rolling round of 34.4 kilometres with the last 10 kilometres flat.
The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
