Tour de Suisse 2022 Route stage 5: Ambri - Novazzano

Tour de Suisse 2022 profile stage 5Thursday 16 June - The 5th stage of the Tour de Suisse looks promising for hilly specialists. The 193 kilometres long race takes in an elevation gain of 2,950 metres, while the last 2 kilometres rise at 3.5% to the line.

The first 20 kilometres are a downhill treat before the riders cycle on the flat to the first – and longest – climb of the day. The Monte Ceneri adds up to 5 kilometres and the average gradient sits at 6.7%. The other hills will be something else entirely.

But first a flat section that leads well into the second half of the stage.

In Mendrisio, with 80 kilometres to go, the riders enter a local circuit with a plentitude of short climbs. It partly overlaps with the World Championships road race of 2009. The one that saw Cadel Evans ride into the rainbow stripes.

A 2.1 kilometres climb at 8.3% is likely to be decisive. The riders have tackled it twice when they take it on one last time in the finale. There are 8 kilometres remaining at the top.

After the descent and a section on the flat the last 2 kilometres rise at 3.5% to the line in Novazzano.

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