Following the start in Flammatt the route is a near constant uphill, although at shallow gradients. The last kilometre before the first KOM in Berg – after 27.8 kilometres – is somewhat steeper. Then the riders continue on undulating roads for the most of the day. The route loops around the Lake of Gruyère and moves through Fribourg’s historic centre – with its double digit cobbles -, while the last 30 kilometres are a lap around Lake Murten.
Following the first passage on the finish line the route winds through vineyards before a likely sprint finish at the historic gate to the old town of Murten.
Last year’s Tour de Suisse saw two bunch sprints with Peter Sagan and Sonny Colbrelli taking the spoils.
The the race is expected to finish around 17.20 local time.
