The route of the 6th stage on Friday June 11th has to be adjusted.
This year there is still a very large amount of snow in the high alpine region and it is very difficult to clear snow.
The authorities of the affected cantons have informed the Tour de Suisse in the last few days about the progress of the snow removal and the planned opening dates of the Alpine passes.
After the already known adjustment of the stage 8, the organizer of the state tour is forced to adjust the routing of the 6th stage at short notice.
As the Nufenen Pass as well as the possible alternative Furka Pass will not be passable, the 6th stage from Fiesch to Disentis-Sedrun on Friday 11 June will not be possible in the planned way. Stage 6 starts in Andermatt, goes over the north side of the Gotthard Pass into Ticino, from there as planned over the Lukmanier Pass to Disentis-Sedrun. The local OC for the final weekend in Andermatt promised its support at short notice, for which the organizers are very grateful.
As already announced, the 8th stage had to be adjusted due to the closed Susten Pass. The queen’s stage now leads from Andermatt over the Oberalp Pass, the Lukmanier into the Leventina and via the south side of the Gotthard Pass back to Andermatt.
Little changes in the characteristics of the two stages; it can be assumed that the 84th edition of the state tour will also be open and exciting until the last day.
