With 1,819 metres of climbing, a breakaway is likely to succeed with the right riders on board. Think Thomas De Gendt. Last year, the Flemish attacker outwitted the peloton in a similar stage.
The race sets off on undulating terrain before a descent leads to a flat section of 40 kilometres. The riders tackle the Col du Mollendruz, which is an ascent of 9.4 kilometres long and its average slope sits at 5.4%. The Mollendruz is crested with 74 kilometres remaining.
Back in the valley the route continues to a climb with shallow gradients. After moving through Reverolle, the finale will be super fast. The Reverolle climb is crested inside the last 30 kilometres and the rest of the oute is mostly on descent.
