Tour de Suisse 2018 Route stage 2: Frauenfeld - Frauenfeld
Sunday, 10 June 2018 - The 2nd stage of the Tour de Suisse is played out near Frauenfeld. The route amounts to 155 kilometres and features four laps, all with four hills.
Each lap totals 39 kilometres. But since the first round is partly neutralized the race is 155 kilometres. Last year, Tour de Suisse’s 2nd stage was a similar hilly criterium and Philippe Gilbert won the bunch sprint.
Shortly after the start a 2.5 kilometres hill at 4% makes way for a 800 metres hurdle at 5%. In each round these are the warm-up stretches. A little over 15 kilometres into the lap a punchy 2 kilometres appears – 6.5% on average but with a steepest ramp at 20%. Straight after the descent the last uphill sector accounts for 3.3 kilometres at 3.5%.
On the last crest the route is at its highest elevation – 625 metres. The riders drop down to 400 metres before 6 kilometres on the flat run to the (passage on the) line.
The first three riders take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while three intermediate sprints (at kilometre 50.5, at kilometre 89.5, at kilometre 128.5) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
