Locarno – Moosalp

Commentary David Loosli

From one “sunny Canton” to the next. For the riders, however, it will be anything but a holiday! After the start in Locarno, the route leads northwards through the Leventina and the Val Bedretto. The big battle for the General Classification will start at the latest on the ascent to the Nufenen Pass – the highest road pass in Switzerland. The long descent through the Upper Valais follows, until the ultimate challenge of the final climb up to Moosalp. The mountain goats in the peloton will enjoy this Queen stage to the fullest. The General Classification will start to really shape up after this stage.
