Tour de Suisse 2018 Route stage 3: Oberstammheim – Gansingen

Tour de Suisse 2018 route 3rd stage Monday, 11 June 2018 - The 3rd stage in the Tour de Suisse travels from Oberstammheim to Gansingen. The hilly race totals 182.8 kilometres, while the last climb - 4.1 kilometres at 4.5% - is crested with 5.5 kilometres to go.

The 3rd stage of the 2018 edition ends in Gansingen. It’s been six editions since the Tour de Suisse visited the village. Vladimir Isaychev brought the early break home by outsprinting a group with Daniel Oss, Rubén Pérez, Karsten Kroon, Salvatore Puccio, and Sébastien Minard.

The 3rd stage features a start loop. At kilometre 36.5 the riders cross the start line for a second time and at 51.1 kilometres they leave the local round to head for the finish loop in Gansingen, which they reach some 55 rolling kilometres later.

At 22.9 kilometre, the Gansingen-loop is spiced up with two climbs. On Hagenfirsterstrasse the route climbs 4.1 kilometres at 4.5% and the Bürersteig is a pass in the Jura Mountains – 3.4 kilometres at 5%.

The closing circuit is raced twice, but since the Hagenfirsterstrasse is to be climbed before the first passage on the line this ascent features three times. The crest is reached 5.5 kilometres before the (passage on the) line. The first 4.5 kilometres are on descent, while the last kilometre is a false flat.

The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while two intermediate sprints (at kilometre 132.2 and at kilometre 162.1) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds each.
