Critérium du Dauphiné 2016 Route stage 4: Tain-l’Hermitage - Belley

Criterium du Dauphine 2016 stage 4Thursday, June 9, 2016 – At 176 kilometres, stage 4 in the Critérium du Dauphiné leads from Tain-l'Hermitage to Belley. Last chance for fast men.

Departure place Tain-l’Hermitage is located on the Rhône River, opposite stage 3’s arrival place Tournon-sur-Rhône. Vine-covered hills all around.

It’s not the first time in the 2016 Dauphiné the riders race on rolling roads. Two times – after 27.5 kilometres and after 93.5 kilometres – a climb is honoured with a 4th category label, but all in all the organisation has opened the way for a sprinter’s party. That said, the fast men should remember that the finale in Belley is slightly uphill.

Etixx-rider Maxime Bouet was born in Belley.

No intermediate sprints in the Dauphiné, yet at the finish time bonuses at 10, 6 and 4 seconds lay waiting for the first three riders.
