The mass sporting event on Sunday 12 June 2016 will kick off under the name 'Morgarten Memorial'. The circuit race was launched in 2015 and is named for the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Morgarten 1315.
The 2nd stage of the Tour de Suisse Challenge leads the participants along a partially shortened, but blocked off original route the professional racers take. Riders can expect an extremely beautiful country route, interspersed with some demanding stretches. The final route will be announced in March 2016.
The Morgarten Memorial will be run from 2015 to 2017 as an official stage of the Tour de Suisse Challenge. From 2018, the mass sporting event will be resumed as an independent cycling event.
