Rock avalanche in Brienz requires postponement of the start of the 6th stage of the Tour de Suisse – new at 12.30 in Chur

Phase Blue was declared in Brienz during the night. The route over the Albula Pass cannot be travelled. The sixth stage of the Tour de Suisse will therefore start in Chur instead of La Punt. The entire Tour convoy with the 23 teams will be moved in the morning from the Engadine via the Flüela Pass as a first priority. The infrastructure and signalling are being set up. Due to the postponement, there will be no activities in La Punt today.

The start in Chur will be at 12.30 in the Obere Au. This solution was prepared together with the authorities of the canton of Graubünden and the city of Chur.

The Tour de Suisse management would like to thank the people of the Engadine and Chur for their understanding and all the authorities involved for their excellent cooperation.
