TdS Challenge test ride on 25 April 2019
On Thursday 25 April in Langnau i.E., you have the unique opportunity to test out the route of the two TdS Challenge stages in the company of professional cyclist Stefan Küng (Groupama-FDJ) and the TdS directors David Loosli and Kurt Betschart.
The test ride will first survey the short time trial route, before continuing on to the original route of this year’s Tour de Suisse in and around Langnau i.E. The hilly circuit heads south from Langnau i.E. and over the notorious Chuderhüsi Pass, before continuing with loops over the popular Schallenberg Pass.
Stefan Küng, winner of last year’s Tour de Suisse time trial and wearer of the yellow jersey during the first days of the race, will be accompanied by another Swiss professional during the test ride.
There will be a small break halfway through the ride with the pro cyclists and ex-pros, with refreshments for all participants. After the stop, the test ride will continue back to Langnau i.E.
The number of participants is limited. The cost contribution of CHF 100 includes lunch and drinks. Changing facilities are available in Langnau i.E.
