Stage 04
Wed, 12.06.24

from  Rüschlikon  to  San Gottardo

Most important facts

Distance: 170.9 km Elevation: 3’551 m+ Category: Mountain Stage Difficulty: 4/5
Commentary David Loosli

The first mountain finish is on the program and with it the battle for the General Classification really gets underway. Starting with the Albis Pass the stage then heads over flat terrain. From Silenen onwards however it is practically all uphill. First through the mystical Schöllenen Gorge and then via Andermatt to the Gotthard Pass. Will a breakaway be able to escape or will the climbers make the most of this opportunity?
