Critérium du Dauphiné 2015 Route stage 5: Digne les Bains - Pra Loup

Criterium du Dauphine 2015 stage 5 Thursday, June 11, 2015 - The 161 kilometres stage leading from Digne les Bains to Pra Loup is as exact copy of stage 17 in upcoming Tour de France. At the same time it is the Queen Stage of the 2015 Critérium du Dauphiné. Let’s go for a repetition…

After getting in the mood at Col des Leques, Col de Toutes Aures and Col de la Colle Saint-Michel the party actually starts in the village of Collmars-les-Alpes as it is there the Col d’Allos starts kicking in, albeit very modest at first. The actual climb totals 14.4 kilometres at 5.5% with a steepest section (10%) after 8 kilometres on the slopes. The Allos peaks at 2,250 metres making it the highest point of the Critérium du Dauphiné – thus Queen Stage!

After cresting Col d’Allos a 16 kilometres drop welcomes the riders. Once in the valley, instantly it goes back up again. The Pra-Loup climb is 6.2 kilometres at an average grade of 6.5%.
