Critérium du Dauphiné 2020 Route stage 4: Ugine - Megève
Saturday 15 August - At 153,5 kilometres, the riders face no less than seven climbs in the 4th stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné. The elevation gain is 4,700 metres. 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’Épine, the first category-1 climb, which comes with the following statistics: 6 kilometres at 7.9%. A rolling descent leads to the foot of the Col de Plan Bois – also category-1, but harder: 6.3 kilometres at 9.5% and ramps up to 15%.
The downhill of the Plan Bois leads onto the last category-1 ascent. The Col de la Croix Fry is a tough test of 6.6 kilometres at 7.9% before a short descent makes way for the Col des Aravis: 4.3 kilometres at 5.5%.
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 ugly thing of 2.7 kilometres at 8.8%. 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 descent a 20 kilometres to Praz-sur-Arly, which is where the final haul up to the Megève altiport begins. The last 7.4 kilometres go up at 4.7%.
The first three riders on the line earn time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
