STAGE 03

20 JUNE 2022

124 KM

Vaduz – Chur

Commentary David Loosli

Today the peloton leaves Liechtenstein and heads towards Chur with a loop via Altstetten SG and Gais AR. There are several climbs to be tackled on this 3rd stage. Initially up to Gais, where the cyclists have to cover 6 kilometres and 500 metres of altitude gain. Secondly, the route leads over the St. Luzisteig into the Grisons. The last kilometres are also uphill. This will make it very difficult for sprinters on the day. It is quite possible that breakaways will be able to steal away on these climbs.
