The race sets off near the Pont du Gard. This ancient Roman aquaduct crosses the Gardon River 25 kilometres northeast of Nîmes. The route moves through the Rhône valley and visits the famous Roman Theatre of Orange before entering a sheer endless false flat of 70 kilometres. The slope kicks up a bit on the Côte de La Rochette-du-Buis and, in quick succession, the Col de Mévouillon, before the route reaches an elevation of 883 metres at kilometre 110.5.
The Tour de France continues on predominantly flat roads to the foot of the Col de la Sentinelle. The 5.2 kilometres climb at 5.4% is crested inside the last 8.5 kilometres before the riders fly down to the finish line in Gap.
Gap is a regular host of the Tour the France. The last three stages ended in solo victories: Thor Hushovd (2011), Rui Costa (2013) and Rubén Plaza (2015).
Time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds are awarded to the first three riders on the line.
