A Travers Lausanne - NE

Switzerland, July 31, 2001

2000 Results    Past winners

This Swiss National Event is an invitation only race consisting of two separate mountain time trials, each of 6.85 km. Each time trial involves riding from the edge of Lake Geneva and ascending through the city until the riders reach the highest point.

This year's race was won by Australian Cadel Evans (Saeco), fresh of his victory in the Brixia Tour. Evans won both stages, with José Luis Rubiera (US Postal Service) finishing second each time, giving him second overall. Third place went to Saeco's Laurent Dufaux, while recent Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong managed 8th place. Evans will be happy with that, seeing as the TdF is one of his goals to ride in the future.
