Critérium du Dauphiné 2018 Route stage 2: Montbrison - Belleville (Beaujolais)
Tuesday, 5 June 2018 - Amounting to 180.5 kilometres, the Critérium du Dauphiné's 2nd stage travels from Montbrison to Belleville in the Beaujolais region. Following a flat to rolling start the second half of the race gets slightly more hilly before the finale is largely on descent.
The first 40 kilometres are as good as flat before the route becomes more undulating. After approximately 80 kilometres the Col de Cambuse (5 kilometres at 4.6%) presents itself. It’s the start of a more hilly section of 64 kilometres with in order of appearance Col de la Croix de Marchampt (4.9 kilometres at 5.2%), Côte de Régnié-Durette (1.4 kilometres at 5.4%), Col de Crie (4.9 kilometres at 4.3%) and Col du Fut d’Avenas (3.8 kilometres at 6%). At an elevation of 740 metres the Fut d’Avenas is the highest point of the day. A section of 26.5 kilometres – obviously mostly on descent – takes the riders to the line at 185 metres.
The hills in the 2nd stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné are not too arduous – four times 3rd KOM-category, once 4th. The route features 1,770 vertical metres.
The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds. The race does not include intermediate sprints.
