Tour de France Femmes 2022 Route stage 7: Sélestat - Le Markstein

Tour de France Femmes 2022Saturday 30 July - The Tour de France Femmes saves the best for last. Stage 7 is the first of two mountainous trips into the Vosges Mountains. After three hard climbs - Petit Ballon, Platzerwasel, Grand Ballon - the finish lies near the Markstein ski station.

The riders leave Sélestat to traverse the plain of Alsace for 35 kilometres. Shortly after moving through Munster the Petit Ballon looms. The 9.3 kilometres climb at 8.1% is followed by a descent.

Back in the valley there is no time to dilly dally, as the riders enter the 7.1 kilometres long Col du Platzerwasel. The average gradient sits at 8.3%, while the route continues to climb at shallow gradients after the Platzerwasel.

Shortly after the first passage on the line a long descent takes the riders to Oderen and some 10 kilometres later the decisive Grand Ballon climb appears. The ascent is 13.5 kilometres long and averages 6.7%.

The route does not descend after the final climb, but continues just below the ridge for 7 kilometres to Le Markstein.
