Tour De Suisse

The Tour de Suisse (English: Tour of Switzerland) is a one week UCI World Tour stage race held annually in June. The race was first held in 1933 and has evolved in timing, duration and sponsorship. With the Critérium du Dauphiné, it is a proving ground for the Tour de France, and part of the UCI World Ranking calendar. Like the Tour de France and the Dauphiné, the Tour de Suisse offers mountain climbs and at least one individual time trial. Several winners of the Tour de Suisse have also won the Tour de France, including Eddy Merckx and Jan Ullrich. In 2005 the organizers moved the race to earlier in June.

Famous quotes containing the word tour:

    Do you know I believe that [William Jennings] Bryan will force his nomination on the Democrats again. I believe he will either do this by advocating Prohibition, or else he will run on a Prohibition platform independent of the Democrats. But you will see that the year before the election he will organize a mammoth lecture tour and will make Prohibition the leading note of every address.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
