Breathtaking route

Four big climbs

After the start in Zurich, the riders will soon enter hilly regions. This is followed by the climbs of the Glaubenbielen Pass and the Brünig Pass. The Grimsel Pass is the longest climb of the race. A long descent of 60 kilometres gives you some rest, before the climb from Täsch to Zermatt is the final challenge. With 280 kilometres and around 6,500 metres of elevation, Zurich - Zermatt is the toughest one-day race in Switzerland.
