This year’s Tour of Switzerland will not conclude in Switzerland, but in Liechtenstein. In the capital of that small country, Vaduz, a time trial of 25 kilometers is scheduled. In the leader’s shirt Looking forward.
The Road, Stage 8, Tour of Switzerland 2022
The time trial is really one for the purest ones, as the number of cycles can be counted on one hand. From Vaduz, we first set the path to the north, parallel to the Rhine. After passing 12.5 kilometers, the riders pass the intermediate point between the cities of Eschen and Mauren.
In that second village you have to change direction, because beside the start there is also the end in Vaduz. This is largely achieved via a long and wide road, as it is simply a matter of stomping the wattage all the way to the end.
Start: 11.20 am
Finish: 4.20 pm
Eighth stage of the 2022 Switzerland weather tour
Where it cools dramatically on Sunday in Belgium and the Netherlands, this is not at all the case in Switzerland and Liechtenstein. The temperature is expected to be 36 degrees Celsius, while the wind comes from the west and therefore blows mainly in the side.
Favorite Stage 8 Switzerland Tour 2022
Based on last week’s arrow shape, you can do nothing but Stephen Kong (Groupama-FDJ) as the top favorite for this stage. The Swiss pacemaker was absolutely impressive and it will be very important for him to cap off this fantastic week with a fantastic stage victory in Vaduz.
Earlier this year, a similar time trial was scheduled for the Algarve Tour, with Küng outselling RYMCO EVENBUIL† The air bullet He sees in this chrono the only possibility to make some of his Tour de Suisse, as the general classification didn’t want to go smoothly this week.
Geraint Thomas He should ride his best possible experience to finish the Tour de Suisse as leader, and allow the Welshman to be in perfect shape only in this discipline this year. The fourth places on the Tour de Romandie and the Tour of the Basque are proof of this.
Other strangers like Nelson Oliveira (Movistar), Maximilian Schachmann (BORA-hansgrohe), Andreas Leknessund (Team DSM), Daniel Felipe Martínez (INEOS Grenadiers), Michael Matthews (BikeExchange), Patrick Bevin (Israel-Premier Tech) It’s still on the right track, but for them, a place in the top three seems to be the highest they can achieve.
