A mountain is a landform that rises above the surroundings. It is usually higher and steeper than a hill, but there is no definition for the exact distinction and demarcation of both terrain forms. A mountain should be characterized by a certain independence, so have sufficient distance from other mountains and a minimum height above a pass. Counterpart is the valley.


Geologically and geographically related mountains form a mountain or a mountain range. A distinction is made between high mountains and low mountain ranges.


The designation of a terrain by humans as an independent mountain is subjective and not sharply demarcated from the term summit. The only thing that is clear is that there are more peaks than mountains. Normally, a mountain will have a main and several secondary summits, since, according to the definition of mountaineering associations, an ascent of 30 meters is sufficient for one summit.


The Tour of Switzerland (officially: Tour de Suisse) is a professional road cycling stage race that takes place throughout Switzerland. It is traditionally celebrated in mid-June, as a prelude to the Tour de France, and belongs to the UCI WorldTour calendar, the highest category of professional racing.1


The first edition of the race dates back to 1933,1 and was interrupted in 1940 and 1943-45 due to World War II and recently due to the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.


It is considered the fourth great lap, as it is the fourth race with the most stages (9) in the UCI WorldTour category, after the big three.1


The Italian Pasquale Fornara is the rider with the most overall victories to his credit, specifically four, achieved in 1952, 1954, 1957 and 1958, and Peter Sagan is the one who holds the record for wins in stages won with 16.
