Critérium du Dauphiné 2017 Route stage 3: Le Chambon sur Lignon – Tullins
Tuesday, 6 June 2017 - The route of stage 3 in the Critérium du Dauphiné amounts to 184 kilometres. Although the roads between Le Chambon-sur-Lignon and Tullins are not completely flat, this is one of the rare chances for sprinters.
A few flat kilometres and a 20 kilometres drop – that must be a dream start for most riders. Following the descent from 1,042 to 401 metres above sea level the route is marked by undulating roads. Riders who are eyeing up KOM-points have four chances.
With some 50 kilometres done two back-to-back climbs of the 4st category are the first opportunity for the KOM-boys. Côte de Saint-Félicien is 2.1 kilometres with an average gradient of 4,5% and Col de Fontayes is 2.1 kilometres at 5.2%. Both 4th category and done after less than 60 kilometres in the saddle.
The next KOM-opportunity begins at kilometre 134. Firstly the Côte des Sarrets, a 2.9 kilometres climb at 4.9%, and 10 kilometres down the road Côte de Roybon begins, which is 1.4 kilometre at 5.8%. The Sarrets is the only 3rd category climb in this stage, the other ascents are of the 4th category. After the Roybon the last road continues on a false flat for a couple of kilometres before the last 35 kilometres are played out on descending and flat terrain.
The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
