It’s a 20.8 km climb with a 7,5% slope and a vertical gain of 1,610 metres. This is an eagerly awaited event. The route snakes through the forest then, at a certain altitude, the vegetation completely disappears. Riders follow a route of straight lines and bends, through a lunar landscape, bleached by the sun. The sight of the Tour is a wonderful spectacle as too is the view provided by Provence’s unique scenery.You’ll find all necessary information about the stage and how to organize your visit on:
