Tour de Suisse 2016 Route stage 1: ITT in Baar

Tour de Suisse 2016 stage 1Saturday, June 11, 2016 – The Tour de Suisse opens with a 6.4 kilometres long individual time trial in the streets of Baar.

The Swiss canton of Zug is the start hub of the Tour de Suisse from 2015 to 2017. Last year the race opened in Risch-Rotkreuz and this time Baar is the host, located on the other side of Lake Zug. On both occasions we are talking time trialing. In Risch-Rotkreuz Tom Dumoulin was fastest, besting home rider Fabian Cancellara.

The race is on rolling roads. The opening kilometre is slightly downhill before a 500 metres climb at 5% takes the riders to the highest point of the day. Following a drop the last 3 kilometres are a false flat leading up to the finish line.

Baar has been hosting the Tour de Suisse since 2001, when it was the backdrop for a Gianluca Bortolami win in stage 3. The next day the peloton left from Baar to head for Wildhaus, resulting in a Vinokourov victory.
