Commentary by David Loosli
As in the previous year, the third edition of the Tour de Suisse Women will open with a circuit race. Cyclists will have to complete three 20-kilometre laps. The course leads around the Ottenberg and promises to be an interesting opener for competitors and spectators alike. With a rather steep slope at the beginning of the lap, it remains to be seen whether this will be a stage for the sprinters or not.
More of a hill than a mountain, Ottenberg is a popular excursion destination in the region and boasts natural beauty.
