Critérium du Dauphiné 2021 Route stage 8: La Léchère Les-Bains - Les Gets

Criterium du Dauphine 2021 stage 8Sunday 6 June - The final stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné travels over seven peaks from La Léchère Les-Bains to Les Gets. The 147 kilometres long race ends with a climb at shallow gradients. Yet, the penultimate ascent - Joux Plane - is quite the opposite.

The last stage of the Dauphiné takes in a 2 kilometres climb to start before the real action begins in Ugine, after more than 22 kilometres. The Côte d’Héry-sur-Ugine is a 10.2 kilometres climb at 5%.

After a short descent the route continues to climb in several stages until the Col des Aravis brings 6.7 kilometres at 7% to the table. The riders fly down to Le Grand-Bornand to enter the Col de la Colombière. This ascent is 11.7 kilometres long and averages 5.8%.

Back in the valley there are 50 kilometres remaining. The riders tackle the Côte de Châtillon-sur-Cluses – 4.7 kilometres at 5% – in the build up to the Col de Joux Plane. The hardest climb of the day is 11.6 kilometres long and averages 8.5%.

A plunge down to Morzine precedes the last test of the Critérium du Dauphiné. But it’s certainly not the toughest. The finish climb into Les Gets is 6 kilometres long while the inclination hovers around 3% most of the time.

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.

The race is expected to finish around 14.55 local time (CEST).
