Critérium du Dauphiné 2020: The Route
From Wednesday 12 August until Sunday the 16th, the Critérium du Dauphine is the ultimate test ahead of the Tour de France. All stages finish uphill.
The opener is a hilly race of almost 220 kilometres long.
The 2nd stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné is short and, potentially, explosive. At 135 kilometres, the route takes in three intermediate climbs before a final haul up on the Col de Porte: 17.5 kilometres at 6.2%. The finish climb re-appears on the Tour de France, although it will be tackled from the other side.
Stage 3 includes two massive ascents. The Col de la Madeleine – also on the Tour de France – is a demanding test of 17.1 kilometres at 8.4%, while the finish climbs to ski resort Saint-Martin-de-Belleville is 14 kilometres long and hovers around 6%.
At 153 kilometres, the 4th stage serves seven climbs, three of which are 1st category and one is hors catégorie. The elevation gain adds up to 4,700 metres.
The final stage is another tough test, featuring eight climbs and 153 kilometres of racing. Once again, the finish lies near the Megève altiport, although the ascent is 11 kilometres long and the average gradient sits at 5.2%.
