Tour de Suisse 2023 Route stage 6: Chur - Oberwil-Lieli
Friday 16 June - The longest stage of the Tour de Suisse would have added up to 215.3 kilometres, but is has been shortened to 146 kilometres because of a rock avalanche. The finale remains the same. It's hilly and the finish is situated on a 2.5 kilometres climb at 6.7%.
[Underneath you’ll find the original route. The first two paragraphs are taken out of the route and the new start is in Chur, at the beginning of paragraph 3]
The riders climb the Albula Pass from the start. The ascent from La Punt is 8.9 kilometres long and the average gradient sits at 6.8%.
A descent of over 30 kilometres takes the pilots to the second climb of the day. This is a 7.5 kilometres climb at 7.5%. After the KOM sprint in Lenz the route continues to climb at shallow gradients for approximately 6 kilometres.
The riders descend to Chur before entering the second part of the race. This section is 85 kilometres long and mostly flat. The Kerenzerberg is the only hurdle – 5.9 kilometres at 4.5% and with the summit 90 kilometres before the finish.
One could argue that the third part of the route is a hilly race. The first obstacle appears with 55 kilometres to go – it’s a 2.5 kilometres climb at 9.8%. The route continues to go up either up or down, while the finale opens with 15 kilometres left on a 700 metres ramp at 8.8%.
A downhill leads to the base of the climb to Islisberg – 1.4 kilometres at 8.4% – before another downhill ushers in the finish climb. The last 2.5 kilometres rise at 6.7% to the line.
Starting at kilometre 107.2, the Golden Kilometre serves two opportunities to gain time bonuses of 3, 2 and 1 seconds. The first three riders on the line take 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
