Critérium du Dauphiné 2021 Route stage 4: Firminy - Roche-La-Molière

Criterium du Dauphine 2021 stage 4Wednesday 2 June - The fourth day of action at the Critérium du Dauphiné is traditionally for time trialing. The undulating parcours is 16.4 kilometres long.

Last year’s Critérium du Dauphiné was shortened to five stages and the time trial was cut. Two years ago Wout van Aert stormed to the first of two stage wins on a route with a similar profile, although it was 10 kilometres longer.

The shortest route from start to finish is half as long, so the riders take a detour. The route first winds its way to Unieux, where the only time check is situated at kilometre 7.5. It’s also on the longest uphill sector of the day.

The time trial course lies just southwest of van Saint-Étienne, which is a regular host to the Tour de France. The last stage winner in Saint-Étienne is Thomas De Gendt (2019).
