Where: Switzerland When: June 6-14 2020 Rank: UCI WorldTour
Along with the Critérium du Dauphiné, the Tour de Suisse is one of the key preparation events for riders taking part in the Tour de France, in addition to being a prestigious race in its own right. In 2020, it takes place between June 6-14.
The race traditionally features a mixture of time trials, relatively flat stages for the sprinters and high mountains. In the past, the weather has also played a part in the event, with the high mountain passes often affected by poor conditions and snowfall.
The outgoing edition was won by Egan Bernal, and served as a preparation race for the Tour de France.
Bernal was on fine form as he beat Bahrain-Merida’s Rohan Dennis to the overall win, before going on to win the Tour.
