It has been a while, but back in 2006 the Dauphiné arrived in Bourgoin-Jallieu, too. That race amounted to more than 200 kilometres, while Fabian Wegmann took the win ahead of his fellow-escapees Thomas Voeckler, Egoi Martínez and Francisco Mancebo.
Today the riders will enter the village singly at the end of a chrono race. The start is in La Tour-du-Pin and the first 5.5 kilometres are marked by an inclination of around 4%. Then a slight descent of 10 kilometres, while the time check is at kilometre 12.5.
Immediately after the downhill section the steepest stretch accounts for 1.9 kilometres at 6.1%. After this, the rest of the route is played out on flat to slightly descending roads.
