The start in Roanne is at an elevation of 270 metres and the finish in Montagny is at 483 metres. Following a flat section the first false flat begins with 5 kilometres done and 5 kilometres later the ‘top’ is reached. The drop is the false flat in reverse.
Shortly after the intermediate checkpoint at 14 kilometres the next false flat begins. Actually, the average grade in the last 10.5 kilometres is a just under 2%.
Last year, the Dauphiné didn’t feauture a TTT. Back then a 10 kilometres ITT on a flat course was won by Chris Froome.
