    The Critérium du Dauphiné 2013 race route on Google Maps/Google Earth and the stage profilesThis Sunday, the Critérium du Dauphiné 2013 will start, just on the other side of the border, in Champéry in Switzerland. This miniature Tour de France is made up of 8 stages at less than 4 weeks before the start of the Tour itself on Corsica, especially with the climb of the Alpe d'Huez and the Col de Sarenne followed by the descent towards Bourg d'Oisans.

    In this article, you'll find all the information you need about this race, which already is at its 65th edition this year, with maps of the race route on Google Maps/Google Earth, the time- and route schedules and the profiles of each of the stages.

    The Critérium du Dauphiné 2013 race route on Google Maps

    The Critérium du Dauphiné 2013 is made up of 8 stages of which only one will be an individual time trial. Indeed, the first stage is a roundtrip with start and finish in Champéry (Switzerland) and the 6 other stages are also stages in line. Only Wednesday's stage will take place as a time trial.

    1/ Sunday 2 June 2013 - Champéry (CH) > Champéry (CH) - 121 km

    The first stage of this smaller sister of the Tour de France will start and finish in Switzerland, in Champéry, but the biggest part of the stage will take place on French soil anyway.

    Indeed, after the start in Champéry the riders will go towards Troistorrents where they'll turn west to start the climb of the Côte de Morgins, a first category climb which, with its 9.2 km @ 6%, is a good way to start this race. After having crossed the French border they'll go through Châtel, Abondance and Bonnevaux where they'll turn right to go up to the most western part of this stage just before Thonon-les-Bains. That's where they'll turn around and via La Vernaz and Le Biot they'll get on the Col du Corbier (first category / 7.6 km @ 7.5%). After the descente they'll get back on the same route they took on the way in Bonnevaux where they'll turn right towards the intermediate sprint in La Chapelle-d'Abondance.

    Except for a few places where they'll take a slightly alternative route, the route they'll follow will be the same as on their way to this place, with a climb of the Pas de Morgins (2nd category) which, with its 4.5 km @ 6,7%, will be less difficult than when they came from the other side. Just before they finish they'll climb the Côte de Champéry (3rd category, 6.9 km @ 3,3%) which has its summit at 1 kilometer from the finish on the Route d'Entrevayes in Champéry.

They'll then continue in the same direction until the feeding zone close to Allonzier-la-Caille before they continue west.

    Via the Côte de Mons (4th category, 1 km @ 5.5%), they'll go up to Bellegarde-sur-Valserine and the Côte de Lancrans (3rd category, 3.1 km @ 5,2%).

    5/ Thursday 6 June 2013 - Grésy-sur-Aix > Valmorel - 139 km

    A quite particular stage profile for this 5th stage starting in Grésy-sur-Aix which will start with a circuit via Cusy. When they climb the Côte de Trévignin for the first time it will be just before the real start but the second time it will count as a 3rd category climb (4.4 km @ 6.6%).

    Direction south-east then towards the Col du Frêne (4th category, 1.9 km @ 6%) before they go on to Albertville. From there, the riders will again go south via the intermediate sprint in La Bâthie and the Côte de la Croix (4th category, 2.3 km @ 4.1%) until Aigueblanche where they'll turn right to start the final climb towards the finish in Valmorel.

    6/ Friday 7 June 2013 - La Léchère-les-Bains > Grenoble - 143 km

    After the start in La Léchère-les-Bains, the 60 first kilometers of this stage, via Albertville and its intermediate sprint, are quite calm.

    The Côte d'Arvillard (4th category, 2.2 km @ 5.3%) will only be a starter of what will follow, with the Col du Barioz (first category, 7.1 km @ 7.3%), the Col des Ayes (2nd category, 3.8 km @ 8.1%) and a little bit less the Col des Mouilles (4th category, 2 km @ 6.1%).

    The descente towards Bourg d'Oisans will not be followed by a second climb in the Dauphiné though because in this stage the riders will continue further on the way the came from before they turn left towards the climb of the Col d'Ornon (first category, 10.5 km @ 6.1%).

    After the descent they'll find the feeding zone in Valbonnais, sprint in Corps and go on via the Col du Noyer (first category, 11.3 km @ 7.2%) towards the mountain top finish in Superdévoluy (3rd category, 4 km @ 5.7%).

  1. Bonjour Thomas,

    merci pour les parcours.
    Je voyais le final vers Oyonnax moins dur.
    Auriez-vous des doutes sur les données ASO pour la montée de Valmorel, avec ses 11km à 7%!!!, pour ne pas les noter ?

    Sinon, en regardant attentivement les profils, je pense qu'on aura trois premiers jours intéressants où beaucoup vont bouger, jusqu'au chrono qui, par le manque de difficultés, me paraît même trop long (même si j'avais pu penser le contraire auparavant). Le classement risque de ne plus trop évoluer par la suite.

  2. Les 3 premiers jours sont bien, cela promet une course de mouvement.
    L'étape d'Oyonnax est nettement mieux tracée que celle qui était sur le Tour en 2012.
    D'une manière générale, je trouve ce parcours vraiment sympa.

  3. There is something wrong with the Google-Earth link, I get this message: La page que vous avez demandé (http://www.velowire.com/images/blog/dauphine_libere/2013/Criterium-du-Dauphine-2013.kml) n'existe pas. Veuillez utiliser le menu sur la gauche afin de consulter ce site ou utiliser le moteur de recherche ci-dessous pour effectuer une recherche à l'intérieur de celui-ci.

  4. @Aurélien M : non, l'absence de mention des données sur la montée de Valmorel n'était pas liée à cela. C'est qu'en fait j'avais oublié de reprendre ces données quand j'ai créé la carte Google Maps et comme je me suis basé sur mes cartes pour écrire l'article je n'avais plus ces données sous la main ;-).

    Sinon, en me basant sur une application que je suis en train de développer avec Jérémy Roy ;-), j'arrive plutôt à 6,83% sur 10,5 km.

    @Gerard Willems: sorry daarvoor/sorry for that, it should be OK now.
