180 KM

Locarno – Moosalp

6th Stage Locarno-Moosalp

From one “sunny Canton” to the next. For the riders, however, it will be anything but a holiday! After the start in Locarno, the route leads northwards through the Leventina and the Val Bedretto. The big battle between body and mind will start at the latest on the ascent to the Nufenen Pass – the highest road pass in Switzerland. The long descent through the Upper Valais follows, until the ultimate challenge of the final climb up to Moosalp. “Mountain goats” will be in their element on today’s Queen stage.
