STAGE 05

16 JUNE 2022

193 KM

Ambri – Novazzano

5th Stage Ambri-Novazzano

Benvenuti in Ticino! And Benvenuti to the participants who registered for the final four stages. Stage 5 is a pure “Ticino stage”. The sunny region of Switzerland hosts a truly classic stage. After the start next to the new ice hockey stadium of HC Ambri-Piotta, the Tour de Suisse Challenge groups set off on the journey south. In addition to the climb to Monte Ceneri, the constant ups and downs on sections of the 2009 Mendrisio World Cup course will be a highlight of the day. This additional circuit with the finish in Novazzano will be completed a little more than twice.
