Flims, Laax and Falera are a trinity of resorts, each with their own specialization. Both in winter and summer the area is a true outdoor paradise.
Starting in Flims, the first 60 kilometres are on rolling yet gradually descending terrain. Then the first ascent to Woldhaus kicks in, peaking at 1,090 metres – the highest point of the stage.
The race concludes with a local round of 30 kilometres, to be taken three times. Each lap brings a climb starting in arrival place Schwarzenbach. However, the finish is on the lower slopes, 7.8 kilometres under the top – yet the arrival is uphill!
In 2014 the 4th stage was the flattest in the Tour de Suisse. Mark Cavendish was fastest.
