Critérium du Dauphiné 2020 Route stage 4: Ugine - Megève

Criterium du Dauphine 2020 profile stage 4Saturday 15 August - At 156.5 kilometres, the riders face no less than seven climbs in the 4th stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné. For GC-battle aficionados!

Three out of seven climbs are 1st category, while there is also an hors catégorie ascent. So stage 4 is definitely a race to look forward to.

Shortly after the flag is dropped the riders tackle the Col de l’Epine, the first category-1 climb, which comes with the following statistics: 6.1 kilometres at 7.6%. A rolling descent leads to the foot of the Col de Plan Bois – also category-1, but harder: 6.3 kilometres at 9.6% and ramps up to 15%.

The downhill of the Plan Bois leads onto the last category-1 ascent. The Col de Croix Fry is a double-digit monster of 5 kilometres before a short descent makes way for the Col des Aravis: 4 kilometres at 6.3%.

Time for a breather, finally. A downhill of 16 kilometres takes the riders to the foot of the Côte d’Héry-sur-Ugine, which is an uphill of 2.7 kilometres at 6.1%. The route descends further and moves through start place Ugine before gently starting to climb again in Albertville.

Following some 15 kilometres of false flat and a short descent the HC-ascent of the day takes the shape of the Montée de Bisanne: 12.4 kilometres at 8.2%. The riders fly down a 20 kilometrs downhill to Praz-sur-Arly, which is where the final haul up to the Megève altiport begins. The last 10 kilometres go up at almost 5%.
