After a year without spectators the Tour de Suisse will once again feature an exceptional supporting program this year. There is something for every age group. Come along and celebrate a festival of cycling with us!
Activities at the Start and Finish
In addition to top-level competition with a host of international stars, there will also be plenty on offer for cycling fans and spectators. The supporting program of the Tour de Suisse includes entertainment for young and old. On both weekends there will be a Bike-Expo and a Kids-World for families to enjoy. A large selection of exhibitors will appeal to parents, while kids will be able to demonstrate their skills on the cycle dexterity course at Kids World, sponsored by Primeo Energie.
At each Stage spectators can get a first-hand glimpse of the competitors and teams at the Start and stroll through the TdS-Village at the Finish. Also every day the Primeo Energie Kids-Race for the youngest cycling fans will be held on the finishing straight. As a long-time partner of the Best Young Pro, Primeo Energie is still committed to encouraging cycling fun for the youngest riders.
With the Energy Booster and the virtual last kilometre, Primeo Energie also presents two additional activities in the Finish area at each Stage. The Energy Booster gives fans another reason to get fired up. The decibel measurement on the big screen will show whether there is sufficient power left to cheer the cyclists home.
Before the Pros reach the finish line, two people from the audience will have the opportunity to virtually duel each other on the final kilometre. The digital cycling platform ROUVY provides the framework for this. The competitors will pedal on two stationary bicycles while the audience cheers them on.
Team Presentation of the Pros
On Saturday 11th June 2022, the men’s team presentation takes place from 5:30pm to 7:00pm at the Start/Finish area in Küsnacht. All teams will be on site and the cyclists will be individually introduced. There will be interviews with the team leaders and the rare opportunity for fans to take photos with the Pros.
For those unable to attend the Team Presentation in Küsnacht a live stream of the event will be available on our social media channels.
Advertising Convoy ahead of the Race
The Publicity Caravan is almost as much a part of the Tour de Suisse as the peloton and is an absolute highlight for all spectators along the route. About an hour before the pro cyclists, the Publicity Caravan drives along the original route and the participating partners distribute giveaways, product samples or flyers to the waiting fans. The early bird catches the worm! You can find the exact passage times of the advertising convoy in the race schedule of the respective stage.
