Tour de Suisse 2016 Route stage 8: Davos - Davos

Tour de Suisse stage 8Saturday, June 18, 2016 – Stage 8 in the 2016 Tour de Suisse is a hilly indidividual time trial with start and finish in mountain town Davos. At 16.8 kilometres, the course takes the riders to a maximum elevation of 1,661 metres.

The last time the Tour de Suisse was in Davos was in 2009. Back then, stage 2 both started and finished in the highest town in Europe (Bernard Eisel won the sprint), while stage 3 left from Davos to head for Lumino (Mark Cavendish won the sprint).

In 2016, both start and finish of the last two stages in the Tour de Suisse are in Davos. Stage 8 is a time trial, while stage 9 brings a short yet tough mountain stage.

The ITT’s route leads over rolling roads. Straight from the start the riders descent slightly for 4.6 kilometres, while the following 4.8 kilometres are almost flat. Then comes a 2.8 kilometres climb at 5.1 % before a 2.2 kilometres drop.

The first part of the last 2.4 kilometres are a false flat up and the second part a false flat down, so breakneck speeds are guaranteed.

Both ITT’s in last year’s Tour de Suisse were won by Tom Dumoulin.
