Critérium du Dauphiné 2020 Route stage 3: Corenc - Saint-Martin-de-Belleville
Friday 14 August - Stage 3 of the Critérium du Dauphiné is a 157 kilometres race. Two huge ascents mark the route: the Col de la Madeleine and the finish climb to ski resort Saint-Martin-de-Belleville.
The finish climb was also the last climb of the last Tour de France. Saint-Martin-de-Belleville lies halfway up the road to Val Thorens, where Vincenzo Nibali took the spoils and Egan Bernal won La Grande Boucle.
The route is virtuallly flat, except for the two ascents. The riders clip into their pedals in Corenc to set sail for Notre-Dame-du-Cruet, which lies at the base of the Col de la Madeleine. The climb kicks in hard with the first 4 kilometres rising at 10%. The Madeleine levels out a bit, but it’s never easy. The entire climb is 17.3 kilometres long, while the average gradient sits at 8.3%.
After a long descent the route rises false flat to the finish climb. This one is 14 kilometres long and only the fourth kilometre is, at 11.6%, really steep. The gradients on the rest of the climb mostly hover around 6%, except for one flat and one descending kilometre.
Just like in stage 2, the Dauphiné serves a climb from the upcoming Tour de France, where the Col de la Madeleine will be featured in stage 17.
The first three riders on the line earn time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
