It’s a stage that should basically be for the sprinters. However, as is often the case in Switzerland sprinter stage or not, the terrain is not completely flat. In addition to speed, sprinters must overcome a total of 1,890 metres in altitude before they can fight for the stage win. The sprinters’ teams will also have a lot to do to keep the peloton together. Often the first “real” stage of a Tour is very animated, as everyone is still refreshed and motivated.
