Critérium du Dauphiné 2017 Route stage 5: La Tour de Salvagny – Mâcon

Critérium du Dauphiné 2017 stage 4Thursday, 8 June 2017 - At 175 kilometres, stage 5 in the Critérium du Dauphiné travels from La Tour-de-Salvagny to Mâcon. The route takes in six climbs, five of these are in the first half of the race.

We have to go back to 2012 for the last time a big pro-cycling event visited arrival place Mâcon. Five years ago the Tour de France travelled from Mâcon to Bellegarde-sur-Valserine, where Thomas Voeckler brought an early break home.

La Tour-de-Salvagny is departure place of the 5th stage in the Critérium du Dauphiné. After leaving the village near Lyon the riders start to climb the punchy Côte de Belmont d’Azergues – 1.4 kilometre at 8.6% – before the route continues for almost 50 kilometres on undulating terrain. Then four climbs follow within a 32 kilometres frame with the Col du Fut d’Avenas the most prominent. The Avenas climbs in 8.8 kilometres at an average gradient of 5.1%. This is is the toughest climb, the other three are marked by similar grades yet they are much shorter.

Stage 5 is played out in the rolling Burgundy countryside. The last hill – Col du Bois Clair: 3.6 kilometres at 3.9% – is crested with 32.5 kilometres left before the race probably comes down to a bunch sprint in Mâcon.

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