8. stage : Schaffhausen - Schaffhausen
This stage will start and finish at the new LIPO park. The 100 km course on a 12.5 km city circuit promises a fast-paced race with plenty of racing dynamics and excitement. This shorter stage, with eight laps, offers plenty of variety for the public in Schaffhausen as well as those watching on TV. ‘This is an opportunity to further develop the Tour de Suisse and increase its popularity, and promote cycling in general,’ says Loosli.
