Tour de France 2023 Favourites stage 16: ITT for climbers

Tadej pogacar - Tour de France 2023 Favourites stage 16: ITT for climbersfoto: Cor VosPure time trialists will be not be too thrilled with an ITT of 22.4 kilometres with an elevation gain of 880 metres. That's another story for time trialists with climbing legs... (Slideshow route/profile)

Early in the route the riders tackle a 1.3 kilometres climb at 8.8% before flying down at breakneck speeds to the valley of the Arve. They follow the river to Sallanches and after some corners in the domestic zone the route continues on a flat and straight road to Domancy.

From Domancy the riders climb out of the valley on a 2.5 kilometres ramp at 9.4%. The route flattens out a bit, without becoming flat, as the last 3.5 kilometres rise at 5% to the line in Combloux.

In short, in order to win the only ITT on the Tour de France you have to be a good climber who knows how to push the big gear in the flat sections in the valley.
