Tour de Suisse

Tour De Suisse – 8-16 June 2013

Official Website  

Being Swiss and loving clockwork the Tour de Suisse typically does in fact tour all of Switzerland in a clockwise direction.

Another funny little idiosyncrasy to watch for is their characteristic loop of the town at the finish of many stages. The loop configuration varies from several small loops of approximately 10kms to one large loop of maybe 60kms – it’s all a bit odd but then it makes the racing more like the Belgian style which is familiar to all of the riders.

The final time trial is a mix of flats, a decent short mountain climb and some twisty bits – anything can happen and the winner often changes at the last minute – a bit like the weather……..!
