Stage 03
Tue, 11.06.24

from  Steinmaur  to  Rüschlikon


Most important facts

Distance: 161.7 km Elevation: 1’974 m+ Category: Flat Stage Difficulty: 2/5
Commentary David Loosli

After a starting lap the peloton heads through Steinmaur one more time before continuing via Canton Aargau and Lucerne towards the finish in Rüschlikon. With  slightly less than 2,000 metres to climb this is the easiest stage on paper. However, the Albis Pass shortly before the finish could cost the sprinters dearly. The last 800 metres of the stage to the finish line are slightly uphill again. Puncheurs at the ready!
