The start ramp is located on the Quai Gustave-Ador at an elevation of 374 metres. The first part of the route travels on rolling terrain to the highest point of the day at 480 metres. The riders pass the intermediate time check after 6 kilometres before a kick-up leads them to the race’s peak at kilometre 8. A false flat descent leads to the 1st of 3 kilometres on the flat.
The 2016 Tour de Romandie also concluded with an ITT in Geneva, although the route was much more hilly. Primoz Roglic powered to victory that day, while Richie Porte sealed the overall win.
