Critérium du Dauphiné 2021 Route stage 3: Langeac - Saint-Haon-la-Vieux

Criterium du Dauphine 2021 stage 3Tuesday 1 June - The 3rd stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné travels on an undulating route from Langeac to Saint-Haon-la-Vieux. The race adds up to 172.8 kilometres, while the home straight kicks up to the line.

Following a 17 kilometres climb at shallow gradients the riders move through Fix-Saint-Geneys, a village at an elevation of 1,086 metres. The Dauphiné remains at that altitude for awhile, although two moderate climbs stand out – Côte d’Allègre and Col des Limites, respectively 3.3 kilometres at 4.8% and 3.7 kilometres at 5.5%.

After the Col des Limites, and 85 kilometres of racing, the riders fly down to Montbrison, at 432 metres above sea level.

The rest of the race takes predominantly place on the flat. Yet, sprinters should take note of the home straight, which is not flat at all, but kicks sharply uphill.

The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprint comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
