The Tour de Suisse ends two weeks before the Tour de France and, along with the Critérium du Dauphine, the race is seen as an ideal test of form before the July showdown. Edition 81 starts on Saturday, 10 June 2017, and is set to finish on Sunday, 18 June. The Tour de Suisse features three chances for climbers and two time trials. The Queen Stage travels to the Tiefenbachferner in Sölden, Austria, a 14.2 kilometres climb at 9.5%.’

In 2016, Astana's Miguel Lopez has claimed the biggest win yet of his professional career as the 22-year-old sealing overall Tour de Suisse victory in a shortened ninth and final stage of the WorldTour race. Lopez, the 2014 Tour de l'Avenir winner, became the seventh race leader after the Davos time trial and be finishing in the front group ensured his victory over Movistar's Ion Izagirre and Giant-Alpecin's Warren Barguil.

The upcoming edition of the Tour de Suisse starts with two stages in Cham. Stage 1 is a 6 kilometres time trial, while the 2nd stage is a hilly criterium that should fancy fast men. Stage 3 travels from Menziken to Bern and is tailor made for sprinters too, yet they have to be prepared for a 900 metres climb in the last 1.5 kilometres. Stage 4 brings the first summit finish in Villars-sur-Ollon. Chris Froome climbed to victory on the 11.1 kilometres ascent at 7.6% in last year’s Tour de Romandie. Travelling from Bex to Cevio, the 5th stage takes in the mighty Simplon Pass as an intermediate climb. The last 50 kilometres are in descent or flat. The route of the 6th stage crosses the San Bernardino Pass and the Albula Pass. The arrival is in La Punt after a drop from the Albula Pass.The Queen Stage travels from Zernez to Sölden, Austria. Or, to be more accurate, to the Tiefenbachbachferner, a glacier at an elevation of 2,780 metres. To arrive at that altitude the riders have to climb 14.2 kilometres at an average grade of 9.5%. The finish lies 3 kilometres after the Rettenbachferner, where the Tour de Suisse finished in 2015 (Thibaut Pinot win) and 2016 (Tejay van Garderen). A weekend of stages in Schaffhausen is to bring the curtain down on the 2017 Tour de Suisse. Stage 8 is a hilly criterium before the last stage is an ITT of 28.6 kilometres in which a 3.7 kilometres climb at 5% is crested with 5.6 kilometres to go.

The Grand Tour of Switzerland combines the highlights of Switzerland with a beautifully scenic route. Motorways on the Grand Tour are chiefly avoided and only taken when it makes traffic-sense. 

Peter Sagan announced his presence in Tour of Suisse, citing that he will now take a break Paris-Roubaix and return to racing at the Tour of California in May. He has been racing since January 15 after starting his season at the Tour Down Under in Australia."I'm very tired but the season continues," he said. "I'll take a bit of a break now and then I'll get going again at the Tour of California. Then I'll have important races like the Tour de Suisse and the Tour de France."
