The 2017 Tour de Suisse was a road cycling stage race that took place between 10 and 18 June. It was the 81st edition of the Tour de Suisse and the twenty-fourth event of the 2017 UCI World Tour.[2][3]

For the second time in three years,[4] Slovenian rider Simon Špilak (Team Katusha–Alpecin) won the race after taking the race lead on the seventh stage, soloing to the stage victory when the race visited Austria. He finished 48 seconds clear of BMC Racing Team rider Damiano Caruso,[1] while the podium was completed by LottoNL–Jumbo's Steven Kruijswijk, a further 20 seconds in arrears of Caruso.

In the race's other classifications, Bora–Hansgrohe rider Peter Sagan won the points classification for the sixth time in seven years after further extending his record for stage victories in the race – he won two stages to move to fifteen in his career; Aqua Blue Sport rider Lasse Norman Hansen led the mountains classification for the duration, while the best placed home rider was Mathias Frank (AG2R La Mondiale), finishing in seventh place overall. The teams classification was won by AG2R La Mondiale, with Frank being joined in the top-ten by Domenico Pozzovivo in fourth.

As the Tour de Suisse was a UCI World Tour event, all eighteen UCI WorldTeams were invited automatically and obliged to enter a team in the race. Four UCI Professional Continental teams competed, completing the 22-team peloton.[5]

Classification leadership table[edit]

In the 2017 Tour de Suisse, four different jerseys were awarded. The general classification was calculated by adding each cyclist's finishing times on each stage, and allowing time bonuses for the first three finishers at intermediate sprints (three seconds to first, two seconds to second and one second to third) and at the finish of mass-start stages; these were awarded to the first three finishers on all stages except for the individual time trial: the stage winner won a ten-second bonus, with six and four seconds for the second and third riders respectively. The leader of the classification received a yellow jersey;[33] it was considered the most important of the 2017 Tour de Suisse, and the winner of the classification was considered the winner of the race.

Additionally, there was a points classification, which awarded a black jersey.[33] In the points classification, cyclists received points for finishing in the top 5 in a stage. For winning a stage, a rider earned 10 points, with 8 for second, 6 for third, 4 for fourth and 2 for 5th place.[33] Points towards the classification could also be accrued – awarded on a 6–3–1 scale – at intermediate sprint points during each stage; these intermediate sprints also offered bonus seconds towards the general classification as noted above.[33]

Points for the mountains classification
Position 1 2 3 4 5
Points for Hors-category 20 15 10 6 4
Points for Category 1 12 8 6 4 2
Points for Category 2 8 6 4 2 1
Points for Category 3 3 2 1 0

There was also a mountains classification, the leadership of which was marked by a blue jersey.[33] In the mountains classification, points towards the classification were won by reaching the top of a climb before other cyclists. Each climb was categorised as either hors, first, second, or third-category, with more points available for the higher-categorised climbs.[33]

The fourth and final jersey represented the classification for Swiss riders, marked by a red jersey.[33] This was decided the same way as the general classification, but only riders born in Switzerland were eligible to be ranked in the classification.[33] There was also a classification for teams, in which the times of the best three cyclists per team on each stage were added together; the leading team at the end of the race was the team with the lowest total time.[33] In addition, there was a combativity award given after each stage to the rider considered, by a jury, to have been most active, or in the case of the individual time trials, the stage winner was automatically deemed the most active rider.[33]
