Critérium du Dauphiné 2015 Route stage 7: Montmélian - Saint Gervais Mont Blanc

Criterium du Dauphine 2015 stage 7Saturday, June 13, 2015 - The journey Montmélian-Saint Gervais Mont Blanc is definitely one to look forward to – a 155 kilometres stage peppered with a series of climbs, including five in the 1st category. Top-finish.

With Col de Tamié (8.5 kilometres at 6.4%) and Col de la Forclaz (8.1 kilometres at 7.8%) the warm-up is well underway with 60 kilometres done. Then the middle section of the race comprises Col de la Croix Fry (11.2 km, 7%) and Col des Aravis (4.3 kilometres, 5.8%), both located at an elevation of 1,500 metres and both crested within an 8.5 kilometres time frame.

Pff, time for a break. A 40 kilometres drop, only interrupted by a ten kilometres false flat… and then riders are at the foot of the multistage rocket making up the final.

First the short and steep Côte des Amerands – 2.7 kilometres at 11.2% – and after a negligible descent the route continues to Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc. The ascent is 7 kilometres at an average grade of 7.7%. Top-finish!
