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%.
