Tour de Romandie 2018 Route stage 3: Ollon - Villars

Tour de Romandie 2018 Stage 3Friday, 27 April 2018 - The 3rd stage of the Tour de Romandie is an individual time trial for the climbers. Ollon lies in the valley and Villars high up on the mountain. The 9.9 kilometres route climbs 785 metres.

Two years ago, the climb featured in the 4th stage as part of a 15.8 kilometres climb at 5.3%. It was on the menu twice – once as the ultimate haul up to the line. That day, Chris Froome climbed to victory.

The first slopes are removed and as this was the least demanding part of the climb, the riders now face a long-busting chrono-race of 9.9 kilometres with an average gradient of almost 8%.

The start podium stands in Ollon, which is famous for its wines. Arrival place Villars is actually part of the municipality of Ollon – it’s a ski-village at an altitude of 1,258 metres above sea level.

The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.

The first riders leaves the ramp at 14:28 and the arrival of the last one is expected around 17:30 – both local times.
