122 riders will come to the start of the decisive individual time trial of the Tour of Switzerland 2010 in Liestal tomorrow. Of the 26.9 kilometers the first 11.4 are uphill to win 229 meters in altitude, before going back downhill to Liestal.

In the general classification, the leader Robert Gesink (Rabobank) has a time gap with the other riders in the top 10 of at most 1'38" only and the Dutch rider must thus give everything he has in this individual time trial if he wants to win this 74th edition of the Tour of Switzerland.

In this article you can find the start order for this individual time trial.

For all details about the circuit of this individual time trial of the 2010 Tour of Switzerland in Liestal, I invite you to read my article The 2010 Tour of Switzerland route on Google Maps/Google Earth and the time- and route schedule.


The start order for the riders in the individual time trial of the 2010 Tour of Switzerland

The first rider to start tomorrow will be Stuart O'Grady (Team Saxo Bank) at 1.21PM, followed by 101 other riders at a one minute interval (Maxime Monfort (HTC-Columbia) will be the 102nd to start at 3.02PM) before the 20 last riders start every 2 minutes: Daniele Pietropolli (Lampre-Farnese Vini) at 3.04PM up to Robert Gesink (Rabobank) at 3.42PM. The total time on the circuit is estimated to be around 35 minutes so Robert Gesink will know the final time of Lance Armstrong (Team Radioshack) when he's still in the climb, since the American rider will start at 3.30PM.
