1st stage: ITT Cham - Cham
The prologue time trial at Hub Zug in Cham has become a cherished tradition. The course is flat and fast. ‘A high pace is guaranteed,’ says Loosli. However, which explosive time trial specialist will be able to assert himself the year after Fabian Cancellara?
Start & finish in Cham
With more than 16,000 residents the municipality of Cham, beautifully situated on the north-western bank of the lake of Zug, has long been a city. In addition to preserving its open spaces and parks along the lake and in the countryside, the city provides ideal conditions for living and working. As the largest municipality of the ZUGWEST economic region (www.zugwest.ch), Cham is easily accessible and is characterized by numerous economic benefits.
The natural features and recreational facilities of Cham are recognised well beyond the municipal boundaries. These include Vilette Park, which is open to the public, and Hirsgarten on the shores of Lake Zug, the Lorzenweg, the Städtler Forest as well as generally good infrastructure for culture and sports. Numerous events, some of which are held in the community’s Lorzensaal, and active clubs and societies contribute to the high quality of life.
