The first part of the route is pan-flat, while the intermediate climb is 3 kilometres with an average gradient of 3%. The hill is crested near the Abbaye de Saint-Michel de Frigolet, which is also the location of the only time check after 14.5 kilometres.
Following the descent the riders hit a false flat, but as they come storming down the descent it will have no impact. The last 500 metres are something else, as this section rises to the finish line at 7%.
The ITT in last year’s Paris-Nice was won by Wout Poels.
