The principle remains unchanged from last year, three special timed stages in a loop, classified by their level of difficulty: Red+, Red and Blue.
• STAGE 1 : LES BRUYERES [RED +]
7km distance / 1100 m elevation loss
Starting at the highest point of the three timed stages, lucky astride your bike, hands on the bars, and head in the clouds at more than 2,850 metres above sea-level.
7 kilometres of lunar landscape and numerous technical difficulties await you on your run down to the finish line in the Exhibitors’ village in Les Bruyères.
• STAGE 2 : LA MOUTIERE [BLUE]
4.5km distance / 500 m elevation loss
From the summit of la Moutière and its lake of turquoise water, your ride will take you through a fabulous rocky valley to the finish line at the Caron corner.
• STAGE 3 : SAINT MARTIN DE BELLEVILLE [RED]
4.8km distance / 750 m elevation loss
A jaw-dropping category-red descent through the alpine pastures linking banked turns and uneven terrain of increasing fun.
