Paris-Nice 2019 Route stage 6: Peynier - Brignoles
Friday 15 March - At 176.5 kilometres, the 6th stage in Paris-Nice is played out on a rolling route with a more hilly profile in the second half. Sprinters or attackers?
The race from Peynier to Brignoles could offer the sprinters another chance, but possibly with not all of them still on board in the finale. Following 100 kilometres on undulating roads the route becomes more lumpy in the last part.
Côte de la Sainte-Baume, a 5 kilometres climb at 5%, is crested 60 kilometres before the line. The race then continues to lesser hurdles. Côte de Mazaugues would make a fine finale with its 1.3 kilometres at 6.3%, while the last climb of the day is Côte de Sainte-Philomène. The route reaches this summit after a 8 kilometres climb at 3.5% and with 17.5 kilometres remaining.
So it’s either the sprinters or stage 6 of Paris-Nice could see the breakaway find success.
The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while two intermediate sprints (at kilometre 146.5 and kilometre 172.5) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds. Note: the last bonus sprint is 4 kilometres before the finish line!
