15.33 The group will have to speed up this easy stretch if they want to go and get the fugitives back. Although the recent climb is difficult, a 7-inch gap is difficult to repair.

14.09 Moving on to the race, there is a 12-man running group that also includes Italians Fausto Masnada and Andrea Pasqualon and we’ll bring you the full composition soon. The group chases at 6’30” while the first two difficult climbs are made for the day: the Nufenenpass.
14.07 A situation that unfortunately takes us back to a couple of years ago that we never wanted to get back. The race continues, but the atmosphere is certainly very tense even for those who stayed.

14.02 The group spent an eventful morning in Switzerland. Real rain of withdrawals due to covid. 30 runners were affected including Yellow Jersey and Alexander Vlasov.
14.00 Friends of OA Sport, enthusiasts and cycling enthusiasts, good morning and welcome to the LIVE LIVE stage six of the Giro di Svizzera 2022!
OA Sport friends, enthusiasts and cycling enthusiasts, good morning and welcome to the LIVE LIVE stage six of the Giro di Svizzera 2022! It starts with the success of Alexander Vlasov who also earned him the captain’s shirt. Today the real ascent has finally arrived!
A 181 km track featuring two very challenging climbs, according to Swiss racing tradition. The first climb is approximately halfway along the roadfor Novinbase. The altitude recognized as GPM is 13.6 km at 7.8% but in fact the road will start to climb much earlier until it reaches 2,478 metres.
If the first ascent is indeed capable of a great choice, then in the second we will witness a great battle. We will climb up to 2048m from the Moosalp altitude with a 17.7km climb at 7.6% which will constitute the second largest “out of class” GPM. Today’s trajectory will inevitably leave its mark on the overall rating.
Vlasov fired the first message yesterday, but Jacob Vogelsang, Geriant Thomas and Nelson Bowles hit back in attendance. Domenico Pozofevo just lost a 10″ and can look for the bang on a track very suitable for his characteristics. Interest is also in Sergio Higuita and Ion Izagiri, without excluding Dani Martinez, Thibaut Pinot and Remko Evenpoel, despite the difficulties of the last stage. Estimated departure at 11.40 am, Our live broadcast will start at 2.00pm, don’t miss it!
