Paris-Nice 2023 Route stage 5: Saint-Symphorien-sur-Coise - Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux
Thursday 9 March - The longest stage of Paris-Nice adds up to 221.4 kilometres. The route between Saint-Symphorien-sur-Coise and Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux is predominantly flat, although is does feature five modest climbs, four of which are classified.
The first three KOM climbs are crammed together inside the first 35 kilometres. The riders sprint for mountain points on the Côte de Coise (1.5 kilometres at 8.6%), Côte de l’Aubépin (4.9 kilometres at 5.2%) and Côte de Trèves (2.3 kilometres at 6%). No descent after the latter, but the route continues to climb at shallow gradients for a few kilometres.
Paris-Nice then descends to the Loire Valley and remains as flat as a skating rink for the ensuing 100 kilometres.
It’s only back to climbing again on the Col de Devès, a 3.6 kilometres ascent at 4.7% with the intermediate sprint at the top. Following the descent and about 10 kilometres on undulating terrain the last climb appears. The Côte d’Aleyrac is 4.5 kilometres long and averages 4.3%
There are still more than 30 kilometres remaining after Côte d’Aleyrac. First on descent, then on the flat.
The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprint comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
