This Saturday the moment of truth arrived in the 73rd edition of the Critrium del Dauphin with the first of the two alpine stages of a decisive weekend.
The seventh stage that takes place between Saint-Martin-Le-Vinoux and La Plagne, of 171.5 kilometers, will be a key event for the candidates for the general classification. The battle begins.
The journey is relatively comfortable until kilometer 78, without noticeable difficulties, but from that point the road rises for 38 kilometers linking the Cota de Venthon (4 Cat. With 2.5 km at 4.8 percent) with the Col du Pr, the first in the Special Category, with a hard climb of 12.6 kilometers at 7.7 percent.
With hardly any respite, and after a brief descent, turn to Col Cormet de Roselend (2 Cat. With 5.7 km at 6.5 percent). Nobody will be able to relax on this peak because the long descent, 30 kilometers, requires a lot of attention.
The stage will be resolved with the climb to the finish line of La Plagne, a Special Category pass of 17 kilometers at 7.5 percent). The favorites will have ground to attack from afar or mark the differences in the last kilometers. If the race is still open, Sunday’s round will be at Les Gets, another litmus test.
