Nuits-Saint-Georges and pro-cycling – the combination is less obvious than Nuits-Saint-Georges and superior wines. Especially red wine made from the Pinor Noir grape variety. Yet, at times a cycling peloton arrives in this wine walhalla in Burgundy. The last time was in 2011 when Matthew Goss sprinted to victory in Paris-Nice ahead of Heinrich Haussler and Denis Galimzyanov.
Chances are it will be up to the fast men in Tour de France’s stage 7. The route is mostly flat with a rolling section in the middle section. The most prominent climb is the Côte d’Urcy – 2.5 kilometres at 4.2% -, which is crested with 66 kilometres remaining. The rolling middle section is done at kilometre 158 and following a drop the last 50 kilometres are flat.
Once the flag is dropped in Troyes the riders head in an almost straight line down south to Nuits-Saint-Georges. They cross through places such as Chaource, Champagny and Baulme-la-Roche. Besides Goss, Freddy Maertens is another rider who powered to victory in Nuits-Saint-Georges – also in Paris-Nice, edition 1977. La Grande Boucle never visited the wine walhalla.
The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
