Le Teil is a small town on the banks of the Rhône river. The peloton sets off to enter the highly picturesque Ardèche region. On lumpy roads the riders head for an uphill finale.
To be precise, an uphill in three stages. After 165.5 kilometres in the saddle the riders move through Le Vigan. Shortly, they tackle the Col des Mourèzes, which is a 6 kilometres climb with an average gradient of 4.8%. A few kilometres on the flat usher in the hardest part of the route. After Mandagout the route returns to climbing again, often at double digit gradients. The Col de la Lusette is 11.7 kilometres long and the average gradient sits at 7.3%. The first three riders over the summit gain time bonuses of 8, 5 and 2 seconds.
The riders crest the unprecedented Lusette with 14 kilometres remaining. Following a downhill section the Mont Aigoual appears. The final climb is 8.3 kilometres long and slopes at 4%.
The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds. Furthermore, the first three riders over the Col de la Lusette are awarded 8, 5 and 2 seconds.
