Tour de Suisse 2016 Route stage 3: Grosswangen – Rheinfelden
Monday, June 13, 2016 – At 192.6 kilometres, stage 3 in the Tour de Suisse leads from Grosswangen to Rheinfelden. Six KOM-climbs are on the menu, however, chances are it will be up to the sprinters...
In last year’s Tour de Suisse, stage 3 was a huge mountain stage, including the Gotthard pass at over 2,100 metres. Peter Sagan survived it all and went on to win the sprint. Don’t be surprised to see the World Champion this year’s 3rd stage also, albeit he doesn’t need to reach that high as arrival place Rheinfelden is situated on the banks of the Rhine. In fact, the river is navigable by ship from Rheinfelden all the way to the estuary in the North Sea.
There is a Swiss and a German Rheinfelden, both on a different side of the river. The two cities were one until Napoleon Bonaparte fixed the Swiss-German border in the middle of the old bridge connecting the two halves of the town.
To get to the finish line in Rheinfelden the riders are to brave a hily course feauturing six KOM-climbs. That said, only the first hill is 2nd category, the others are 3rd category, while the last 10 kilometres are flat. So yes, why not, let’s hear for the World Champion. Or…?
The stage leaves from rural Grosswangen, a village in the Rottal valley in the heart of Switzerland.
At the line, time bonuses at 10, 6 and 4 seconds lay waiting, while intermediate sprints come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds each.
