Lachen - Pfaffnau
The third stage is all about the lakes - no less than six lakes will be passed along the route. The start will be at the Upper Zurich Lake. The route leads along Lake Aegeri over Sattel to Arth-Goldau and Lake Zug. From there it heads over the Baldeggersee and Halwilersee to Zofingen. The Challenge participants will complete an additional loop before arriving in Pfaffnau. Due to the hilly terrain, the third stage has a spring classic character.
