9. stage: Schaffhausen - Schaffhausen
The contenders will fight for overall victory on almost the same route as in 2011. Every second will count, since time trials can completely upend the overall classification. ‘That is exactly what happened in 2011,’ explains Loosli. ‘The American Levi Leipheimer knocked the Italian Damiano Cunego down to second place in Schaffhausen during the final time trial – by four seconds.’ The stage will start in Schaffhausen’s old town and end at the LIPO Park.
