Re: 83rd Tour de Suisse, June 15th-23rd 2019

The race started with #bahrain Rohan Dennis' first win for Bahrain - by 0.15s:

before #deceuninck Kasper Asgreen took over the lead on day 2, by 0,09s, in a stage #astana Luis Leon Sanchez won with a late attack:

Tomorrow we should get to see a sprint for the win then, I guess...

Stage 3:  Flamatt  ›  Murten   (162.3k)
The 3rd stage of the Tour de Suisse is far from flat, yet a bunch sprint is the most likely outcome at the end of the 162.3 kilometres race from Flamatt to Murten.
Following the start in Flammatt the route is a near constant uphill, although at shallow gradients. The last kilometre before the first KOM in Berg – after 27.8 kilometres – is somewhat steeper. Then the riders continue on undulating roads for the most of the day. The route loops around the Lake of Gruyère and moves through Fribourg’s historic centre – with its double digit cobbles -, while the last 30 kilometres are a lap around Lake Murten.

...but there are not only double digit cobbles in Fribourg, but also in Murten... the stage finishes on the so called "Raffor-Stutz", 150m at 12% average.
