The third stage starts in the German-speaking part of the canton of Fribourg before looping around the Lake of Gruyère in the French part.
Once the riders have acquitted themselves on the steep cobbles of Lorette in the city of Fribourg’s historic centre, the peloton heads for Murten, with a finishing loop around Lake Murten. Spectators will get to see the riders twice in Murten; in between, the field of riders will wind through vineyards in the picturesque landscape around Lake Murten.
The stage will finish at the historic gate to the old town. The organisers expect a fast, hard-fought race through to the finish line.
