Paris-Nice 2023: The Route
Paris-Nice 2023 kicked into gear on Sunday 5 March to finish on Sunday the 12th. As always, the Race to the Sun suited all tastes: sprinters, breakaway specialist and climbers. 2023's time trial was for teams.
The 1st stage is a lumpy race with start and finish in La Verrière. A 1.5 kilometres climb at 4.7% inside the last 6 kilometres is expected to play a vital role in the finale. Stage 2 is tailor made for a fast finishers showdown, although echelon action on the flat and exposed roads of northern France could shake things up.
Stage 3 is a flat team time trial of 32.2 kilometres before the first mountain top finish takes place in stage 4. At the end of a hilly race the last 6.7 kilometres climb at 7.1% to ski resort La Loge des Gardes.
Stage 5 adds up to 221.4 kilometres, which is the longest race of the week. The route is predominantly flat, although is does feature five modest climbs.
Paris-Nice serves a series of climbs – often very steep – in stage 6. The race ends with a 18 kilometres descent before the last kilometre goes up at 4%.
The Queen Stage of the Race to the Sun travels from Nice to the Col de la Couillole. Following the huge Côte de Tourette-du-Château halfway, the climb to the line is 15.7 kilometres long and averages 7.1%.
At 118 kilometres and featuring five climbs, stage 8 offers explosive material. The last climb, Col d’Èze on the steepest side, is crested with 15 kilometres remaining before an ensuing downhill into Nice.
