Welcome to the InsideRide guide to the "Tour de Suisse | 6 | FIESCH – DISENTIS-SEDRUN | Pt 2" AR route on Rouvy. Please read on to see details and photographs on the route, route profiles, and our own ride data on this route.
This route is the second of three that were to comprise stage 6 of the ill-fated 2020 Tour de Suisse. Not to happen in the real world, and to be ridden out in garages around the world on Rouvy instead. It does not begin where the first ride terminates, and misses the section between All' Acqua and Biasca.
Starting at the village of Biasca, the route climbs gradually along the Brenno Valley, passing through the villages of Acquarossa and Blenio, with the horizon dominated by the bulk of the Rheinwaldhorn in this early phase, and by the conical Shapiros of Sosto after Acquarossa. At Olivone the route leaves the Brenno, turning to follow the tributary Brenno del Lucomagno, with the gradient sharpening from here through to the end of the ride, with the scenery much less open and more wooded.
Like all Rouvy augmented routes, this route is beautifully filmed. The picture is stable with resolution available to 1080p. Similar to other routes it also suffers a little from filming speed exceeding ride speed, though rarely is this noticeable.
Like most Switzerland rides the combination of tall snow capped alpine peaks, lush green meadows, and steep walls make for stupendously sublime scenery. Blue skies throughout only add to the quality of this ride, and only in places does the picture become a little bleached by the sun.
After a tough first part to this stage, this route provides for a steadier interlude before the final leg.
