Tour de Romandie 2021: The Route
The Tour de Romandie starts with a prologue on Tuesday 27 April to finish with a demanding ITT on Sunday 2 May. The Queen Stage takes place on the penultimate day of action, while a number of hilly races round out the route.
The prologue is 4 kilometres and 50 metres long. The decisive factor will be the finish climb of 1 kilometre at 8%.
The 1st stage is mostly played out on a 35 kilometres circuit with two short climbs. While the elevation gain sums up to 2,262 metres, the last 15 kilometres are played out on the flat.
Another lumpy race takes place on the third day. With hardly a metre of flat road and a total of 3,435 vertical metres, stage 2 is harder though. The finale goes downhill.
The 3rd stage finishes downhill as well. A circuit of approximately 35 kilometres – with two short and sharp climbs – takes in most of the route before the last 8.8 kilometres fly down to the line.
The Queen Stage travels over four intermediate climbs to ski station Thyon 2000. The finish climb is 20.7 kilometres long and averages 7.7%, while the riders face a total elevation gain of 4,157 metres.
An individual time trial of 16.2 kilometres with several uphill kicks rounds out the route of the 2021 Tour de Romandie.
