Eneco Tour 2016 Route stage 6: Riemst (B) – Lanaken (B)
Saturday, September 24, 2016 – At 177.7 kilometres, the penultimate stage in the Eneco Tour leads over seven hills from Riemst to Lanaken. The last climb is crested with 15 kilometres remaining.
Riemst is a regular host in the Eneco Tour. In the last three editions the riders left here for Sittard (twice) and a summit finish at La Redoute. In 2016 the line is much closer, namely in Lanaken – only 10 kilometres away.
So it’s no wonder the first passage on the line is only 10.4 kilometres into the race. The first climb of the day is Muizenberg, crested after 56 kilometres, yet the other climbs are saved for the last 55 kilometres. With around 115 kilometres done Côte Halembaye looms, a 1,100 metres hill at 6.6%, while 15 kilometres onwards two back-to-back climbs appear. First the steep Côte Bois la Dame (900 metres at 12.2% gemiddeld) and then Côte Rue Saivelette (900 metres at 5%).
At Rue Lieutenant Pirard lies a 800 metres climb at 5%, that’s crested with 138.8 kilometres done. The last two climbs are familiar. Firstly Côte Hallembaye from the other side, meaning a 800 metres at 8.6% and then the climb that started it all – Muizenberg, 650 metres at 6.6%. At the top it’s 15 kilometres remaining.
Time bonuses at 10, 6 and 4 seconds lay waiting on the line.
