With views as breathtaking as the climbs, the Tour de Suisse leads the peloton on a merry chase into the Swiss Alps, where only the hardiest of mountain goats can truly shine.
This year’s race begins with a circuit race in Küsnacht, with the route getting lumpier and bumpier through the week before a relatively flat Stage 4, which offers a short respite before a brutal Stage 6 that features the imposing Nufenen Pass and a summit finish on Moosalp.
There’s another summit stage end to look forward to on Stage 7, which leads up to Malbun, with the race set to finish with a flat individual time trial in Vaduz, Liechtenstein. Picturesque won’t even cover it.
Richard Carapaz may have opted against defending his title, but it’s a quality field that also features Peter Sagan, Tom Pidcock and Jakob Fuglsang. Read on for everything you need to know to watch a 2022 Tour de Suisse live stream from anywhere.
