Critérium du Dauphiné 2015 Route stage 8: Saint Gervais Mont Blanc - Modane Valfréjus

Criterium du Dauphine 2015 stage 8Sunday, June 14, 2015 - In 156.5 kilometres the final stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné leads from Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc to Modane Valfrejus. The final 50 virtually all go uphill. Top-finish!

Yesterday’s finish in Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc was at an elevation of 1,372 metres, but stage 8 leaves the same place at 905 metres for a race on rolling terrain. One moment going up, the other moment going down, but there hardly is a flat metre in sight. Along the way riders crest a series of categorized climbs, all under 5 kilometres and the steepest is Lacets Montvernier – 3.4 kilometres at 8.2%, crested with 108 kilometres done.

After the descent the final 50 kilometres are virtually all uphill on a – still – rolling landscape. The route peaks at 142 kilometres after a 3 kilometres 7% climb up Côte de Saint André. No real descent this time as the route continues to the foot of the final climb of the Critérium du Dauphiné 2015 – Modane Valfrejus, 8.4 kilometres at 5.7%.
