Tour de Suisse 2015 stage 9Sunday 21 June 19, 2015 - The final stage of the Tour de Suisse is a 38.4 kilometres ITT starting and finishing in Bern. The hilly track features some nasty climbs while the final section is flat.

After a false flat up and a false flat down in the opening kilometres it is with 15 kilometres done the first climb kicks in – this is the toughest offering a 9.2% grade for 800 metres. Five kilometres down the road the next climb is a 1.6 kilometre section at 4.5%, while at kilometre 17 a 1.4 kilometre climb at 4.1% awaits the riders. Then a drop and with 35.1 kilometres done the last climb is 900 metres at 6.3%. Once atop the climbing is done and in the flat and final 2.4 kilometres the message is to thunder home as fast as possible.

In 2014, the Tour de Suisse featured two individual time trials – one longer, one shorter, and both won by Tony Martin with Tom Dumoulin second.
