Criterium du Dauphine 2022 stage 5Thursday 9 June - The 5th stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné is a lumpy race of 162.3 kilometres. The last top is crested with almost 13 kilometres to go.

The riders are 50 kilometres underway when the second climb of the day appears. It’s also the most challenging one. The Côte de Dun adds up to 4.9 kilometres and the average gradient sits at 6.8%.

Following an undulating section of some 80 kilometres the riders enter the finale. Three modest climbs – the middle one not classified – follow in quick succession. First the Col du Bois Clair, 2.7 kilometres at 3.7%, then a false flat of 1.5 kilometres, and the Côte de Mont-Brison concludes the trio.

The 1.8 kilometres long Mont-Brison climb goes up at 4.8%. The summit sits almost 13 kilometres before the line in Chaintré. The first part is a proper descent, the rest goes downhill at shallow gradients.
