The parcours is a carbon copy of the 3rd stage of 2018, but with a flat extension of 5.9 kilometres. Back then, Egan Bernal won the ITT, which only featured the 9.9 kilometres climb, that’s now the last third of the race.
The riders start in Aigle, home base of the UCI and in July also the starting hub of a Tour de France stage. On flat roads the route goes to Ollon and that’s where the climb begins. The ascent to the line is 9.9 kilometres long and averages almost 8%. The intermediate time check appears after 8.8 kiometres, which is almost 3 kilometres up the climb.
