The goal of a Tour is to keep the competition as open as possible for as long as possible. With the final time trial of over 25 kilometres, there is definitely the possibility to shake up the final classification. Another reason for an upset in the GC could be the 400 metres in altitude, which could result in greater time gaps. Today the two time trial specialists from eastern Switzerland, Stefan Küng and Stefan Bissegger, may also play a major role. Will it be a Swiss day of celebration?
