Comment from race director, Christian Prudhomme:“From north to south, it’ll be a day of discovery and 100% Swiss with a spectacular finish situated at the Emosson Dam.There will be opportunities to seize on the sequence of 13 kilometres heading to the summit of the Col de la Forclaz, and then on the 10 kilometres that remained to be covered to reach the Emosson Dam.”
