Tour de Suisse 2019 Route stage 1: ITT in Langnau

Tour de Suisse profile stage 1Saturday 15 June - The 1st stage of the Tour de Suisse is a flat individual time trial of 9.5 kilometres. It is an out-and-back race in the Emme valley with Langnau as its start and finish hub.

The Tour de Suisse kicks into gear on an extremely fast course. It is flat and features only three corners. The route follows the river Emme until Lauperswil to head back on the same road.

Last year’s Tour de Suisse commenced with a team time trial of 18.3 kilometres. BMC bested Team Sunweb and home-rider Stefan Küng took the first yellow jersey. Surely, the Swiss won’t mind if a similar scenario unfolds with their national champion powering to victory.

The last rider is expected to finish around 17.20 local time.
