Tour de Suisse 2015 Route stage 8: Bern - Bern
Saturday, June 20, 2015 – Stage 8 is a 152.5 kilometres hilly ride taking the riders from Bern to Bern. The finale offers the last climb of the day in the town itself.
The two final stages of the 2015 Tour de Suisse are mirror-imagining the start of the 9-day stage-race. The first two stages were an ITT and a hilly ride and this time it’s the other way around – hilly ride and ITT. Home-rider and time trialist Fabian Cancellara must be thrilled. To make it even better he lives near Bern, in the suburb Wohlen bei Bern
The riders leave Bern to head southwest in a stage that will take them four times to an elevation of 700 metres. The four categorized cols are to be crested after 91 kilometres, 110 kilometres and 130 kilometres in the saddle, while the last one may not be the toughest, as the Aargauerstalden is featured in the finale, the climb could have a huge impact on the race results. Aargauerstalden is 1.2 kilometres at 5.1% – crested with 2.5 kilometres left.
With about 135,000 inhabitants Bern is the fourth largest city in Switzerland. The old town is beautiful located in a bend of the River Aare.
