    Tomorrow the Col de Manse will be climbed in the final part of the Tour stage - discover it in our video!Early June, as every year, the Critérium du Dauphiné was organised by Amaury Sport Organisation, the same organisor as for the Tour. This race, which is a sort of miniature Tour de France, takes place in the Alps and for velowire.com this was thus the perfect occasion to cover the Critérium du Dauphiné 2013 and at the same time, in collaboration with Kinomap, go discover the main climbs of the Tour de France 2013 in the Alps.

    Now the 100th edition of the Grande Boucle enters the Alps, you'll discover day after day a video of the climb of these mountains.

    We'll start this series of course with the Col de Manse, from Gap via the N85 since that's the direction in which the riders of the Tour de France will climb the Col de Manse during tomorrow's Vaison-la-Romaine > Gap stage!

    Indeed, when they enter the city of Gap, the stage hasn't ended yet since an almost complete loop around the finish city will bring them to the climb of the Col de Manse.

    The climb actually already starts as soon as the riders leave the city of Gap on the N85 with parts going up to 12%, but officially the climb of the Col de Manse only starts when they turn right to the D944.
    This mountain is a 2nd category climb which is 9.5 km long and has an average slope of 5.2%.

    In order to discover the climb which might dynamite the race in the loop around the finish city Gap, velowire.com invites you to watch the video below (you can move the video to a specific location by moving the bike on the map):

    After this climb, the riders will descend the Col de Manse down to La Rochette where they'll turn right on the D314. In the video below this is the part until 3'54" where we see the road which turns right:

    If you'd like to see the complete race route of this stage, you can check it out on Google Maps!

    In the stage which starts in Gap and goes to the Alpe d'Huez, the riders will again climb the Col de Manse only a few kilometers after the start, but in the other direction. velowire.com will of course also allow you to discover that climb, which is much nicer to see, with a similar video!
