Stage 8: Innertkirchen - Schwarzsee
The penultimate stage of the 2007 Tour de Suisse is a lumpy affair which has enough unclassified ups and downs to encourage breakaways while also not ruling out a bunch finish. Starting in Innertkirchen, the profile becomes increasingly jagged as it heads towards the first intermediate sprint on the Rue St. Pierre. The field continues onto the fourth category Weissenstein, fifteen kilometres from the finish in Schwarzsee, then encounters the second bonus sprint in Plaffeien. A third category climb goes from there to the line, providing the opportunity for a late attack on what is the final road race stage of the Swiss Tour.
