Five more ascents to go in over 80 kilometres… The first two climbs are perfect to test the legs. Côte de Tuilières is 2.2 kilometres at 7.8% and Côte de Mont Méauix 1.7 kilometres at 4.3%. Then a short drop leads the riders to the base of Col de Bourigaille gaat. Another 1st category climb. This one is averaging 6.1% over a distance of 5.5 kilometres.
A local circuit of 25.5 kilometres is set to conclude stage 6 of Paris-Nice 2017.
After a passage on the line in Fayence the Col de Bourigaille is on the menu again, yet tackled from another side. Still 1st categroy, the ascent accounts for 8.2 kilometres at 5.9%. At the top there are 19 kilometres left to race.
Following the descent the same climb appears again. Only this time the ascent ends after 1.3 kilometres. But those are steep ramps with an average gradient of 9.8%.
Three years ago Paris-Nice featured exactly the same closing climb. Carlos Betancur bested Rui Costa on the line, thus laying the groundwork for his overall win.
