Paris-Nice 2021 Route stage 1: Saint-Cyr-l’École - Saint-Cyr-l’École
Sunday 7 March - Paris-Nice opens with an out-and-back race in Saint-Cyr-l'École. The 166 kilometres route travels on rolling terrain to a slightly uphill home straight.
Saint-Cyr-l’École lies just west of Paris.
The 1st stage of Paris-Nice takes in two laps of approximately 80 kilometres. The riders traverse rolling roads and sometimes the inclination is somewhat sharper. Four climbs are hard enough for a KOM classification. Firstly the Côte de Senlisse and 5.5 kilometres later the Côte de Méridon. Same recipe in the second round. Both climbs are slightly longer than 1 kilometre and go up at 5%.
The second and last time over the Côte de Méridon is with 24 kilometres out, while the last 500 metres rise at approximately 4%.
Last year’s edition of Paris-Nice saw three bunch sprints. Giacomo Nizzolo, Iván García and Niccolò Bonifazio took the spoils.
The first thee riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while two intermediate sprints – at kilometre 66 and 150.5 – come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
