Tour de Suisse 2021 Route stage 6: Andermatt - Sedrun

Tour de Suisse 2021 profile stage 6Friday 11 June - The 6th stage ushers in the decisive last weekend on the Tour de Suisse. At 130 kilometres, the route includes the Gotthard Pass and Lukmanier Pass before the last 9 kilometres climb at approximately 3% to the line in Sedrun. The elevation gain is 3,190 metres.

Due to a very large amount of snow on the high alpine roads, the stage was changed before the start of the Tour de Suisse. Nufenen Pass out, Gotthard Pas in. Because of this change the original start location Fiesch was altered and – as a consequence – the route was shortened.

The race sets off from Andermatt and the riders don’t dilly-dally as they tackle the Gotthard Pass right after the start. The 8.5 kilometres climb serves an average gradient of 7.6%.

The route then flies down into the Bedretto Valley before continuing on false flat roads. At first false flat down and after 60 kilometres of racing false flat up. The slope gradually increases until the riders enter the Lukmanier Pass. The 18 kilometres climb averages 5.6%.

The riders plunge down a drop of approximately 20 kilometres before the last 9 kilometres rise at shallow gradients to the finish in Sedrun.

The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprints come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds each.

After a descent of almost 60 kilometres the route climbs false flat to the base of the second climb. The Lukmanier Pass is 18 kilometres long and the average gradient sits at 5.6%.

The riders plunge down a drop of approximately 20 kilometres before the last 9 kilometres rise at shallow gradients to the line in Sedrun.

The elevation gain in the 162 kilometer long race from Fiesch to Sedrun adds up to 3,724 metres.
