Paris-Nice 2021 Route stage 6: Brignoles - Biot
Friday 12 March - The riders have arrived in the deep south of France. The 6th stage of Paris-Nice traverses the Provence on a 202.5 kilometres route. A lumpy race with a punchy finale in Biot.
Two years ago Sam Bennett soloed to victory in the town where the riders clip into their pedals, Brignoles. The route goes east on a lumpy route with five KOM climbs and plenty more undulations.
The Côte de Tuilières is the first proper climb: 2.2 kilometres at 7.8%. The riders crest the summit at kilometre 52 and via the Côte de Mont Méaulx (1.5 kilometres at 4.3%) the route continues to the longest ascent of the day. It is 22 kilometres long, although it’s actually two separate climbs.
The Côte de Cabris starts at kilometre 91. The riders reach the summit after 7.6 kilometres with an average slope of 5.8%. An undulating false flat section of 6 kilometres leads onto the Col du Ferrier. Which accounts for another 4.3 kilometres of climbing, this time at 6.8%.
The descent appears some 10 kilometres later. Following two short undulations the riders tackle the last classified climb of the day. The Côte de Gourdon ascends for 4 kilometres at 3.7% and is crested with almost 50 kilometres remaining.
After another long downhill the riders face a 2 kilometres climb at 6% into Roquefort-les-Pins before an undulating section of 15 kilometres leads onto the finish climb in Biot. Which is also 2 kilometres long and also slopes at 5.3%.
The first thee riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while two intermediate sprints – at kilometre 145.5 and 185 – come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
