Tour de Suisse 2015 Route stage 1: Risch-Rotkreuz - Risch-Rotkreuz

Tour de Suisse 2015 etappe 1Saturday, June 13, 2015 - The Tour de Suisse 2015 is a rider-friendly race with fewer transfers. The opening stage is a 5.1 kilometres ITT in Risch-Rotkreuz, while the next stage will be in this municipality also.

The opening time trial is on a rather techical track. While only 5.1 kilometres there are several (sharp) bends to be reckoned with. The first part of the race is slightly uphill and after a downhill section the last 1.5 kilometres are flat. The middle section on the Buonaserstrasse offers changes to power at full speeds since there are no corners.

In 2014, Tony Martin was fastest in the prologue, besting Tom Dumoulin by 6 seconds. The German grabbed the leader’s jersey and it was only in the final stage to Saas-Fee he had give it up to Rui Costa.

The route of the Tour de Suisse is tailor-made for time trialists such as Tony Martin, Tom Dumoulin and home-rider Fabian Cancellara.
