Preview: Tour de Suisse 2019 – Stage 2

What? The 2nd stage is just only a bit more than 50 km? 

Just kidding.

It’s 158 km long, but built up from 3 big rounds. The peloton will cross the finish line in Langnau i. Emmental 3 times, and they will climb the Schallenberg (8,2 km à 4,9%)

and Chuderhüsi (2,8 km à 9,75%)

3 times either.

After the last hilltop is still 18 km to go, that means, the race will be controlled by the teams of sprinters who can survive  the last climb easier than the others. Peter Sagan (BORA-hansgrohe) and Michael Matthews (Sunweb) are the major favourites of the stage. Also Greg van Avermaet (CCC) Rui Costa (UAE Team Emirates) and Tiesj Benoot (Lotto-Soudal) could be part of a final move,
