Tour de France 2022 Route stage 9: Aigle - Châtel
Sunday 10 July - At 183 kilometres, the 9th stage on Le Tour travels from Aigle to Châtel. The riders tackle three intermediate climbs in the second half of the race before the finish runs slightly uphil.
Aigle is home base to the UCI. The Tour de Romandie is a regular visior, but it would be a first for the Tour de France.
The first half of the race is played out on flat to rolling terrain before the Col des Mosses appears around the halfway marker. The 13.3 kilometres climb at 4.1% precedes the Col de la Croix. This is a 8.8 kilometres test at 7.6%.
The riders descend back to Aigle and after a section on the flat the Pas de Morgins appears. The 15.4 kilometres at 6.1% is expected to be decisive – or, at least, pre-decisive.
After cresting the Morgins the riders drop down to the base of the finish climb. The finish lies at the gate of ski area Portes du Soleil at an elevation of 1,297 metres.
La Tour finished once before in Châtel, although it has been awhile. Back in 1975, Lucien van Impe won the time trial from Morzine to Châtel ahead of Ole Ritter and Eddy Merckx.
Another interesting read: favourites to win the race to Châtel.
