Tour de Romandie 2023Thursday 27 April - The riders travel from Morteau to La Chaux-de-Fonds in the 2nd stage of the Tour de Romandie. The hilly race is 162.7 kilometres long and finishes on a short climb.

The finale looks promising for the puncheurs. Three editions ago Primoz Roglic powered to victory on the same finish in La Chaux-de-Fonds. The Slovene outgunned David Gaudu and Rui Costa.

At an elevation of 992 meters, La Chaux-de-Fonds is the second highest located town of Switzerland. Small wonder the route is far from flat.

With almost 50 kilometres remaining the riders reach the summit of the Col de la Vue des Alpes after 5.1 kilometres of climbing at 4.8%. The route then descends into the valley to continue for some 10 kilometers on the flat before the Col de Tourne begins. The 4.2 kilometres climb at 7.2% peaks out with 25 kilometres to go.

The finale includes a 1.5 kilometres climb at 8.1%. Right after the descent the riders tackle a 1 kilometre climb at 6% to enter the last 5.5 kilometres on the flat.

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