Critérium du Dauphiné 2020 Route stage 5: Megève - Megève
Sunday 16 August - The final stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné serves eight climbs in 153.5 kilometres of racing.
The race kicks into gear in Megève with a descent to Domancy, where the first uphill is short and sharp: 2.5 kilometres at 9.4%. The route continues on the flat to Cluses at the foot of the Col de Romme. This is where the climb fest really starts to get going. After this there will hardly be a flat metre.
The Romme is 8.8 kilometres long and the average gradient sits at 8.9%. The route continues to climb false flat for 2 more kilometres after the summit before a 4 kilometres downhill leads onto the Col de la Colombière: 7.5 kilometres at 8.5%.
A 14 kilometres descent leads to the intermediate sprint in Saint-Jean-de-Sixt before the next climb appears. The Col des Aravis is 10.1 kilometres long and slopes at 5.1%, while the riders reach the top with 68.5 kilometres remaining.
After a descent and an undulating section – with the Côte de la Frassette standing out: 2 kilometres at 6.1% – the 5th stage is back where it started, in Megève, with 47.5 kilometres left. The route descends further to tackle the Côte de Domancy, which also served as the first climb of the day. The punchy ascent is probably going to hurt a bit more this time.
Following a short downhill the Dauphiné climbs to the village Cordon – 4.6 kilometres at 8.2% – and after 4 even kilometres the finish climb appears. The 9 kilometres ascent at 4.6% leads, just like the 4th stage, to the Megève altiport.
The first three riders on the line earn time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
