Commentary David Loosli

The penultimate stage is a short but demanding one. Two laps with a total of 120 kilometres and over 3,000 meters of elevation gain await the cyclists. It is sure to be a very fast race, as is so often the case with short mountain stages. With the Col de la Croix and the climb to Villars-sur-Ollon, it will feel like a rollercoaster for the riders. Anyone who needs to make up time before the final time trial will have the opportunity to do so on this stage.
