Tour de RomandieFollowing the prologue on day one the Tour de Romandie continues with a mountainous test of 166.3 kilometres. The race is all the more interesting as it features the circuit that featured in the Worlds' road race in 2020.

The UCI is based in Aigle. The town of 8,000 is used to visiting pro-cycling pelotons, although is has been a while since the Tour de Romandie last visited. Four years ago Fabio Feline won the prologue in Aigle.

On 27 September 2020, Aigle was the centre of the cycling world, as it hosted the start of the men’s Worlds road race. The Tour de Romandie’s 1st stage uses parts of the World Championships course.

The route covers the circuit that was ridden during Worlds road race. Half-way round the 19.4 kilometres loop the riders tackle the Côte de la Petite Forclaz, a 4 kilometres climb at 10.2% with ramps up to 14.5%. Each lap takes in an elevation gain of 478 metres
