    The Critérium du Dauphiné 2019 race route on Open Street Maps/Google Earth, stage profiles and time- and route schedulesWith the Tour of Italy behind us, it is now time to see the Critérium du Dauphiné 2019 start from the Cantal department and more precisely from the city Aurillac. This will be the 71th edition of this race which is considered by some riders as the ultimate preparation race for the Tour de France (the organisor of the race now by the way even uses the subtitle "on the way to the Tour de France by the way; others will prefer the Tour of Switzerland which will start on 15 June) and it is made up of 8 stages of which one will be an individual time trial (the 4th stage, in the middle of the week) for a total distance of 1202.1 kilometers.

    Let's now look in detail the different stages of this Critérium du Dauphiné 2019 with the race routes in Open Street Maps/Google Earth.

    The Critérium du Dauphiné 2019 race route on Open Street Maps

    1/ Sunday 9 June 2019 - Aurillac > Jussac - 142 km

    The first stage of this Critérium du Dauphiné 2019 will take place in the Cantal department, starting in Aurillac. While the finish in Jussac is at only ten kilometers north of the start, it'll be a stage with a total distance of 142 kilometers.

    Very quickly, the riders will start the most difficult climb of this stage, a 1st category climb, the Puy Mary (10.6 km at 6.1%), of which the top will be reached after 34 kilometers. The 30 following kilometers will be downwards, via the intermediate sprint of Salers. Afte the climb of the Côte de Besse (4th category, 2.6 km at 5.2%) the riders can get some energy in the feeding zone in Saint-Chamant before they get to climb the Côte de Saint-Cernin (3rd category, 4.8 km at 4.3%).

    Further on, the peloton will get on a local circuit around the finish city in which they'll have to climb - and thus two times - the Côte de Roquetanou (2nd category, 3.6 km at 7%).

    2/ Monday 10 June 2019 - Mauriac > Craponne-sur-Arzon - 180 km

    The second stage of this Critérium du Dauphiné will start a few kilometers north of the previous day's finish city, in Mauriac. This stage is quite hilly, with no less than 8 climbs all along the stage, of which 5 in the first half of it: the Côte de Moussages (2nd), Côte de la Martel (3rd), Côte de Cheylade (3rd), Côte de la Tourbière du Jolan (4th) and the Côte de Chavanon (3rd). In the second half of the stage, after the feeding zone in Grenier-Montgon, the Côte de la Baraque (3rd), Côte de la Barbatte (2nd) and - after the intermediate sprint in La Chaise-Dieu - the Côte de Saint-Victor-sur-Arlanc (2nd) will be on the programme. The 18 last kilometers of the stage will be almost completely flat down to the finish in Craponne-sur-Arzon.

    3/ Tuesday 11 June 2019 - Le Puy-en-Velay > Riom - 177 km

    From Le Puy-en-Velay, south of the finish location the day before, the riders will start the 3rd stage, and - after the Côte d'Allègre (4th category) and the intermediate sprint in La Chaise-Dieu close to the place where the race route crosses the one of the previous day's stage - it will go on via Ambert and the feeding zone in Job.
    In the second half of the stage, the riders will find 3 upfollowing climbs of the 4th category, the Côte d'Augerolles, the Côte de Courpière and the Côte de Coulaud but this will probably not prevent the finish to be a bunch sprint for this stage, especially because the top of the last climb is at about 60 kilometers from the finish in Riom. The intermediate sprint of the stage will be in Entraigues, at about fifteen kilometers from the finish.

    4/ Wednesday 12 June 2019 - Roanne > Roanne - individual time trial - 26.1 km

    In the middle of the week, Wednesday's stage will take place as an individual time trial, starting and finishing in Roanne, at the Scarabée, the event location of the city. The stage will take place at the west side of the city. The first half of this race against the clock is uphill, up to Saint-André-d'Apchon, and what follows is downhill until Pouilly-les-Nonains, before the final 7 kilometers which are flat until the finish in Roanne. The part between Saint-Alban-les-Eaux and the highest point of this stage and downhill part are the most wavy parts, but apart from that it's mostly straight routes which make up this time trial.

    The 5th stage will be one of the longest stages of this Critérium du Dauphiné 2019 (only the next day's stage is longer), starting in Boën-sur-Lignon, south of Roanne, but this stage will not be particularly difficult. Indeed, after the four 4th category climbs, the Côte de Saint-Galmier, the Côte de Saint-Symphorien-sur-Coise, the Côte de Givors and the Côte de Vienne, and the feeding zone in Jardin, the rest will be pretty flat, with the intermediate sprint in Pajay and all the way through to the finish in Voiron.
