Tour de Romandie 2021 Route stage 4: Sion - Thyon 2000
Saturday 1 May - At 161.3 kilometres and including 4,157 vertical metres, the Queen Stage of the Tour de Romandie travels from Sion to ski station Thyon 2000. The finish climb adds up to 20.7 kilometres, while the average gradient sits at 7.7%.
Sion is located at the foot of the finish climb, but the race is not handed to the riders on a silver platter. First a detour of some 140 kilometres.
This detour features four climbs, two of which are short and the other two are long. The first long ascent is tackled at kilometre 34 and leads to Anzère, while the second one appears inside the last 60 kilometre. The climb to Suen is 15 kilometres long and averages 6.2%.
The climb to the line is even longer, and harder. In winter, Thyon 2000 is the eastern gateway to skiing area the 4 Vallées, but on Saturday 1 May it serves as the finish to the Queen Stage of the Tour de Romandie. The 20.7 kilometres climb averages 7.7%. It’s a long but regular ascent with the steepest sections (at almost 10%) inside the last 2 kilometres.
