The start is halfway up the mountain as well, so once the flag is dropped the route goes uphill. No too long though. After 2.9 kilometres they reach the summit before an undulating section of 6 kilometres leads to a descent of almost 10 kilometres.
Back in the valley it goes straight back up the same mountain. From base to summit the ascent is 11.6 kilometres long and the average slope sits at almost 4%.
The finish lies at the same location as the start, so the finish climb is 8.7 kilometres long. Since the inclination is very steady, the gradient in this part of the climb is also 4%.
The race is expected to finish around 15.00 local time (CEST).
