Tour de Suisse 2024 Route stage 6: Ulrichen - Blatten

Tour de Suisse 2024Friday 14 June - Stage 6 of the Tour de Suisse was meant to be a 151.1 kilometres race, featuring the Nufenen Pass. But since the highest paved mountain pass in Switzerland remains closed, the riders race a 42.5 kilometres alternative with a 6.9 kilometres climb at 9.3% as the finale.

The riders clip into their pedals in Ulrichen, where they originally would have descended the Nufenen Pass. The highest paved mountain pass in Switzerland peaks at 2,478 metres above sea level. A safe crossing is not possible due to large amounts of snow, so the climb is skipped, and racing starts at its base.

The riders now follow the Rhône downstream for 35.6 kilometres and then tackle a 6.9 kilometres climb at 9.3% to the mountain village of Blatten.

Starting at kilometre 38, the Golden Kilometre offers two opportunities to gain time bonuses of 3, 2, and 1 seconds. The first three riders at the finish line take 10, 6, and 4 seconds.
