    The Rhône Alpes Isère Tour 2012 race route on Google Maps, the profiles, time- and route schedules and the teamsThe day after tomorrow, the Rhône-Alpes region will see the start of the 22nd Rhône Alpes Isère Tour which will as usual take place in 4 stages around the city of Lyon.

    Let's discover all details of the race in this article, with the race routes on Google Maps/Google Earth and the list of teams which will start in this race.

    The Rhône Alpes Isère Tour 2012 race route on Google Maps

    4 stages in line over a total distance of 643.2 kilometers will be on the programme of the Rhône Alpes Isère Tour 2012 from Thursday 10 till Sunday 13 May.

    1/ Thursday 10 May 2012 - Domarin > Ruy-Montceau - 141.2 km

    La Porte des Alpes

    The first stage of the Rhône Alpes Isère Tour 2012 will start in front of the town hall of Domarin, while the real start will be at the exit of St. Alban de Roche at 4 kilometers from there.

    Once they started, the riders will go down south until Commelle, via Roche, Saint-Agnin-sur-Bion and Châtonnay, before they turn east and than back north to the intermediate sprint in Bizonnes, after 51.4 kilometers.
    While going back north they continue with another sprint in Saint Victor de Cessieu and the sprint Prime Pollard in Saint-Jean-de-Soudain where they'll also climb the first difficulty of this stage, the Côte de Saint-Jean-de-Soudain, of the 3rd category.

    Once they get to Vézeronce-Curtin, the riders will turn back south-west with the climb of the Côte de Vignieu (3rd category). This will be the hardest climb of this stage with its 2.2 kilometers @ 7.7%.
    In Montcarra the peloton gets on the circuit with the Côte de Demptézieu (3rd category) which will thus be climbed twice. After the first crossing of the finish line where the riders will battle for the last intermediate sprint, the way back to Montcarra will go via the Côte de Montceau (3rd category) and after a new visit of Bourgoin-Jallieu the next crossing of the finish line in Ruy-Montceau (in the Rue de Lavitel just after a double turn) will be the right one to know the first winner and thus the first rider to wear the yellow jersey of this RAIT!

    When the peloton gets to the most northern point of this stage, the riders will not be far from the Prime Bijouterie Pollard and Cru Régnié-Durette which allows its winner in Régnié-Durette to win a Tissot watch and 36 bottles to make his team mates happy!

    Autour de l'Isle Crémieu

    The last stage of the Rhône Alpes Isère Tour 2012 will also have the same start and finish city, Charvieu-Chavagneux. What could the organisation have done better for the local team Charvieu-Chavagneux Isère Cyclisme of which the riders will most probably want to get some good results in this stage.
    Before one of them could however put his hands in the air, the men in pink, with the rest of the peloton, will have to do 154.4 kilometers, including the Col de Portes (1st categorie, 11.8 km @ 6,.%), but also the Côte de Lhuis (2nd category), the Côte de Parmilieu (3rd category) and the Côte de Torjonas (3rd category).

    The stage will be completed with 3 intermediate sprints: in Trept, in Les Granges de Montagnieu and at the first crossing in front of the Lac de Fremenville in the first of 3 laps on the circuit.

  1. Salut Thomas ,trop bien les plans et horaires du RAIT , une erreur pour moi c est l étape au départ de Domarin ou tu passes a Roche devant chez moi et non pas départ Vaulx Milieu comme je l ai écris !!!! Bon finalement avec un emploi du temps chargé , nous avons choisi l étape de dimanche et la COTE DE PARMILIEU pour notre poste et Montcoutié pour notre chouchou .Et puis tradition oblige tu nous reconnaitras grace a un " petit panneau "!
    Bonne course , prends du plaisir sur nos routes Iseroises . A+++ LISEROIS
