Critérium du Dauphiné 2018 Route stage 5: Grenoble - Valmorel
Friday, 8 June 2018 - Stage 5 in the Critérium du Dauphiné is a compact affair. At 130.5 kilometres, the race travels from Grenoble to Valmorel. Hilly opening, flat middle section, and a summit finish after a 12.7 kilometres climb at 7%.
It’s been four years since Grenoble last served as start to a major pro-cycling race. Firstly, the Dauphiné left for a stage to Poisy (Jan Bakelants win) and then the Tour de France traveled to Risoul (Rafal Majka win).
The 2018 Critérium du Dauphiné sets off from the town in the foothills of the Alps and goes to Valmorel. In the first 20 kilometres the riders tackle Côte de Naysord and Col de Mouilles, both 2nd category KOMs. Following the second KOM the road continues to rise false flat before the route descends at kilometre 30. Back in the valley another short climb leads to 60 kilometres on the flat. Then the last climb appears.
The closing climb is 12.7 kilometres and averaging 7%. It’s a steady ascent, the second half slightly steeper than the first half.
