Tour de Romandie 2022 Route stage 1: La Grande Béroche - Romont

Tour de Romandie 2022 Stage 1Wednesday 27 April - The 1st stage of the Tour de Romandie travels from La Grande Béroche to Romont on a 178 kilometres route. The route is going either up or down for the entire day before the last kilometre is a steep climb to the line.

The Tour de Romandie visited Romont in 2019 with a similar finish. Back then, David Gaudu powered to triumph ahead of Rui Costa and Primoz Roglic.

The race kicks into gear on the shores of Lake Neuchâtel and after 37 kilometres on the flat the riders enter the hills. The first climb is 2 kilometres and the average gradients sits at 6.1%. The sprint for KOM points is in Sunchy, but there’s no ensuing descent, as the route continues to climb at shallow gradients.

The race is straightforward. Although the route is far from flat, the climbs are neither long nor tough in itself. De ascents to Esmonts (7 kilometres at 4%) and Massonnens (twice, 2 kilometres at 6.1%) stand out.

Since the riders enter the finishing circuit after approximately 80 kilometres, they’ll have ample time to take in the finish. In fact, they will have crossed the line twice before it’s for the win.

The parcours includes a total elevation gain of almost 3,000 metres.

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