Stage 7: Ulrichen - Grimselpass
The 125.7 kilometre queen stage takes place on Friday July 22nd and is far harder than any other day in the race. Shortly after the start in Ulrichen the peloton will begin climbing the Hors Categorie Furkapass, with the summit coming 21.3 km after the drop of the flag. The riders then descend for 52 kilometres before beginning the Hors Categorie Sustenpass, which peaks 62.4 kilometres from the line. They will then race down to the first of two intermediate sprints, with the second coming five kilometres later, approximately a quarter of the way up the first category summit finish of the Grimselpass.
