Paris-Nice 2021 Route stage 8: Le Plan-du-Var - Levens

Paris-Nice 2021 stage 8Sunday 14 March - The last stage of Paris-Nice is played out on a hilly circuit. Originally scheduled to start and finish on the Promenade des Anglais, the 92.7 kilometres race now finishes in Levens.

The riders clip into their pedals in the valley of the Var river – in Le Plan-du-Var – before taking in two and a half laps of a hilly circuit with two climbs at shallow gradients. The Côte Duranus is 3.9 kilometres long and averages 4.3%. Right after descent the climb to Levens appears, which is 5.3 kilometres long and slopes at 3.1%.

Following a flat section the riders fly back to the valley of the Var to enter an undulating false flat that ultimately leads onto the Côte Duranus. After three times the Doranus climb and the ascent to Levens the Race to the Sun finishes, probably with a sprint of a select group.

The first thee riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while two intermediate sprints – at kilometre 20.2 and 56.4 – come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
