Critérium du Dauphiné 2017 Route stage 2: Saint Chamond – Arlanc

Critérium du Dauphiné 2017 stage 2Monday, 5 June 2017 - At 171 kilometres, the route of the 2nd stage in the Critérium du Dauphiné travels from Saint Chamond to Arlance. A number of climbs lead to a flat to rolling section in the last 50 kilometres.

Shortly after the flag is dropped the riders tackle Côte de Croix Blanche, a 4.6 kilometres climb at 4.1%. The route continues slightly uphill before the drop begins at kilometre 10.

The focus of the race is a three-stage ascent halfway. At kilometre 69 the riders reach the base of Col de Verrières-en-Forez – a 9 kilometres climb at 4.8%. No descent at the highest point though as the route continues on Col de Baracuchet, which is a 6.2 kilometres ascent that is averaging 4.9%. Once again no descent at the ‘top’, as a rolling section of a couple of kilometres runs to Col de Supeyres with its summit after a 2.9 kilometres climb at 5.6%. At an elevation of 1,365 metres this is the highest point today. And, finally, a drop…

The last 50 kilometres of stage 2 in the 2017 Critérium du Dauphiné are played out on flat to rolling roads. The arrival runs slightly uphill.

The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
