    The Critérium du Dauphiné 2022 race route on Open Street Maps and in Google Earth, stage profiles and time- and route schedules and the participants listWith the Tour of Italy (and its last minute result with Jai Hindley's victory) now behind us, it's time already to see the Critérium du Dauphiné 2022 start from the Ardèche department and more precisely from Voulte-sur-Rhône. It'll be the 74th edition of this race which is considered by some riders as the ultimate preparation of the Tour de France with its "concentration of mountains" (others will prefer the Tour of Switzerland which starts on 12 June) and it's made up of 8 stages including one individual time trial (the 4th stage, in the middle of the week) for a total distance of 1194.9 kilometers.



    Let's now look in detail all the stages of this Critérium du Dauphiné 2022 with the race route on Open Street Maps/Google Earth.

    The Critérium du Dauphiné 2022 race route on Open Street Maps

    1/ Sunday 5 June 2022 - La Voulte-sur-Rhône > Beauchastel - 191,8 km

    The first stage of this Critérium du Dauphiné will start in La Voulte-sur-Rhône. Its finish, in Beauchastel, is at less than 4 kilometers but going off north, towards Bourg-lès-Valence, and than west via the Col de Leyrisse (2nd category, 9.9 km @ 4.2%) and the Côte des Baraques (3rd category, 3.3 km @ 6.6%) and going on to Le Cheylard to follow the Eyrieux river, the riders will add quite a lot of kilometers.

    In Les Ollières-sur-Eyrieux they'll get on the final circuit: they'll climb the Côte du Chambon de Bavas (3rd category, 4.7 km @ 5.2%) and go through Privas, return towards the finish city, this time via a slightly different road from the one followed immediately after the start, to cross the finish line where they'll do the intermediate sprint. Back again at the point where they got on this circuit to climb the 3rd category difficulty once more and go on towards the finish line, this time to battle for the victory of this first stage.

    2/ Monday 6 June 2022 - Saint-Péray > Brives-Charensac - 169.8 km

    The second stage of this Critérium du Dauphiné will start in Saint-Péray, only a few kilometers north of the start and finish of the first stage the day before.

    The stage will first go off north, up to Tournon-sur-Rhône, where the riders will turn left towards the west. After the Côte de Désaignes (3rd category, 5 km @ 4.3%) and the Côte de Saint-Agrève (3rd category, 5.6 km @ 4.7%), with the second one actually being the remains of the first climb, the riders will go off soutch and descend almost 600 meters in altitude, to arrive at the foot of the Col de Mézilhac (2nd category, 11.6 km @ 4.1%).

    The climb is not completely finish at that time because the road will go up almost up to the sprint of Le Gerbier de Jonc. Continuing north-west, they'll descend from this plateau and get back on a road going upwards again, giving access to the last difficulty of the day, the Côte de Rohac (4th category, 1.2 km @ 5.9%) and they'll than descend towards the finish in Brives-Charensac, just before Le Puy-en-Velay.

    3/ Tuesday 7 June 2022 - Saint-Paulien > Chastreix-Sancy - 169 km

    While the 3rd stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné 2022 starting in Saint-Paulien will be completely flat halfway through, this will definitely not be the case neither in the part just before, nor in what follows. The riders will indeed find the climb of the Côte de Saint-Vert (3rd category, 3.5 km @ 6.5%) and after the sprint in Issoire the Côte de Besse-en-Chandesse (4th category, 1.2 km @ 6%), knowing that the finish in Chastreix-Sancy is also mountain top (2nd category, 6.2 km @ 5.6%).

    4/ Wednesday 8 June 2022 - Montbrison > La Bâtie d'Urfé - 31.9 km - individual time trial

    Halfway the week, this Wednesday there will be a timed and individual effort, in an individual time trial between Montbrison and La Bâtie d'Urfé.

    From Montbrison, each rider will go off towards Mornand-en-Forez where the first intermediate timing point will be, and on to the second timing point in Chalain-d'Uzore. After Montverdun and Saint-Etienne-le-Molard, the final time will be taken in front of La Bâtie d'Urfé and the castle carrying the same name.

    5/ Thursday 9 June 2022 - Thizy-les-Bourgs > Chaintré - 162,3 km

    This 5th stage will be hilly but it could motivate the sprinters at the start in Thizy-les-Bourgs to give it a chance!

    Early in the stage they'll have to climb the Col des Ecorbans (3rd category, 4.2 km @ 5.6%) however and after the sprint in Chauffailles, the road goes back up again. It is however only at the end of the stage that we'll find two other difficulties of the 4th category referenced for the king of the mountains classification, the Col du Bois Clair (2.7 km @ 3.7%) and a bit further the Côte de Vergisson (1.8 km @ 4.8%). Getting closer to the Mâcon, the route gets flat again and the finish of this stage in Chaintré will be flat.

    6/ Friday 10 June 2022 - Rives > Gap - 196,5 km

    Things will be getting a bit more difficult already for this 6th stage, but this will still be "easy" compared to the weekend which awaits the riders.

    First of all the start of this 6th stage will be in Rives, close to Voiron, and going off south, the riders will find after less than 50 kilometers the three climbs following up on each other: the Côte de Sainte-Eulalie-en-Royans (4th category, 2 km @ 4.4%) and the Côte des Grands Goulets (3rd category, 5.8 km @ 4.7%) and the Col de Rousset (2nd category, 6.6 km @ 5%).

    After a long and sinuous descent, the road already goes up again, first in a reasonable way up to the intermediate sprint in Beaurières. After that, a new difficulty awaits the riders, the Col de Cabre (2nd category, 9.1 km @ 4.6%). After the descent of this col, the riders will continue a part going up, but the last kilometers of the stage will be in descent towards Gap.

    7/ Saturday 11 June 2022 - Saint-Chaffrey > Vaujany - 134,8 km

    The 7th stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné 2022 this Saturday 11 June will be short but difficult. Even though the start and finish locations are not the same, this stage takes a big part of the race route of the 12th stage of the Tour de France 2022, which will take place between Briançon and Alpe d'Huez, in an exact identical way. In the Dauphiné, after the start from Saint-Chaffrey and the sprint in Le Mônetier-les-Bains, the riders will already start the climb of the Col du Galibier (hors category, 23 km @ 5.1%). Known as a very demanding climb, this will not be the only difficulty in this stage. Indeed, the Col de la Croix de Fer (also hors category, 29 km @ 5.2%) awaits the riders and once they've done the descent of this one via Le Rivier d'Allemont, the stage will not continue to Bourg d'Oisans and Alpe d'Huez but in Le Verney they'll start the final climb towards Vaujany (2nd category, 5.7 km @ 7.2%).

    8/ Sunday 12 June 2022 - Saint-Alban-Leysse > Plateau de Solaison - 138.8 km

    The 8th and last stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné 2022 will not be much longer but it'll be at least as difficult, if not more than the previous stage.

    Right after the start from Saint-Alban-Leysse, the riders will climb the Col de Plainpalais (1st category, 8.8 km @ 6.5%) and immediately after its descent, they'll go on with the Col de Leschaux (3rd category, 7.9 km @ 4.5%). What follows will be a bit easier, up to the intermediate sprint in Le Grand-Bornand, where they'll start the climb of the Col de la Colombière (1st category, 11.8 km @ 5.8%) and after its descent and a short visit of the valley, they'll start the final climb towards the finish at the Plateau de Solaison (hors category, 11.3 km @ 9.2%). And that's how this 74th edition of the Critérium du Dauphiné comes to an end and this will thus be the location where we'll know who's the final winner, at less than 3 weeks from the start of the Tour de France 2022!

For the team of the previous winner (Richie Porte), INEOS Grenadiers comes to the start not only with its leader Tao Geoghegan Hart but also with some riders who could target stage wins, like Ethan Hayter or Filippo Ganna.
