The course

The first climb awaits the participants in Schwanden, from there on they are headed towards the Grimselpass in the twilight of the early morning via Interlaken and Meiringen. After the Grimselpass the riders of the full long route have to tackle both the Nufenenpass and the Passo San Gottardo. The Passo San Gottardo will be ridden over the old ascent the "Tremola". On the short course the participants take on the Furkapass after the descent from the Grimselpass.
