For 19.2 kilometres the road rises and falls in gentle folds, fluctuating at an elevation between 400 and 471 metres. Then comes the 3.7 kilometres climb at 5% and after the highest point a 4.5 kilometres drop runs to the flat final 1.1 kilometre.
Just like the criterium in stage 8 this ITT is played out in and around Schaffhausen. The 2011 Tour de Suisse essentially followed the same script. At the time, Peter Sagan took the road race with finish in Schaffhausen, while Fabian Cancellara powered to the win in the time trial on the last day.
