Tour de France Femmes 2022 Route stage 6: Saint-Dié-des-Vosges - Rosheim
Friday 29 July - The 6th stage at the Tour de France Femmes is a race of 128 kilometres with four short climbs. The last one is crested within the last 10 kilometres.
The first 20 kilometres are a gradual build-up towards the Col d’Urbeis, a 4 kilometres climb with an average gradient of 3%. Perfect to stretch the legs.
The route descends towards a undulating run-up to the hardest part of the day. First, the riders enter the Côte de Klingenthal – 1 kilometre at 6.1% – and without a descent in between the Côte de Grendelbruch appears. This climb is 1.2 kilometres long and averages 8%.
Still more than 60 kilometres to after the Grendelbruch climb. The riders descend onto a prolonged flat section and tackle an unclassified climb shortly before crossing the finish line for the first time
The passage in Rosheim is with 20 kilometres to go. The finishing circuit features one more climb. The Côte de Boersch – 1.3 kilometres at 6.1% – is likely to inspire a flurry of attacks. After moving through Boersch the route continues to rise false flat for 1 kilometre before dropping down into Rosheim.
