The following day, the riders will set out along Lake Walen for the longest stage of this year’s race. Following the Rhine upstream, the route goes via Chur to Disentis.
At this point, the route becomes even more mountainous and steeper; the Lukmanier Pass will really put the riders to the test.
Once they leave Biasca in Ticino, the rest of the stage is a relentless 50 km uphill climb. The crowning finish of the seventh stage is the historic Tremola on the Gothard Pass. This historic – cobbled – pass road is one of the best-known and impressive Alpine passes of all. The summit finish in this beloved Swiss location will ensure an electric atmosphere.
