Tour de Suisse 2014 Route stage 4: Heiden - Ossingen

Tour de Suisse stage 4: OssingenTuesday, June 17th -Stage 4 travels 160.4 kilometres from Heiden to Ossingen. In doing so, we stay in the north-east of Switzerland. The area is hilly but today's stage is reasonably friendly for the big men. (Slideshow route/profile)

Starting with a ride along the shores of the Bodensee, riders pass Weinfelnde, Aadorf and Winterthur and arrive at the circuit in Ossingen. After crossing the finish line, the riders face 2 more laps on the circuit.

The route contains two 2nd category cols, the last with 10 kilometres left to race but for a Swiss stage, it’s about as flat as you can expect.

It could be a day for Sagan today. The Slovakian has 6 stage victories in the last 2 years (out of a possible 18) and today’s stage is the type where he can use his power to decimate the field.

The town of Ossingen is near the German border. It is a sleepy town with a population of 1300.

The stage starts at 13:05 (CET) and the finish is expected around 17:05.
