Both Biel/Bienne and Düdingen are near Bern, where the Tour de Suisse is set to close in the last two stages. The organisation opted for a riders-friendly route with fewer transfers and they definitely keep their word. In fact the last two stages are a mirror-image of the first two stages in Risch-Rotkreuz.
In the first half of the race the peloton races at an elevation of around 400 metres, while they are at 600 metres for the last 100 kilometres. Although it offers four categorized climbs, for Swiss standards this is a flat stage. The closing climb is crested with 20 kilometres left.
The 700 metres are at 6% which should suit powerhouses like Peter Sagan, John Degenkolb and Greg Van Avermaet.
