    The Tour du Haut Var 2015 race route in Google Maps/Google EarthThis Saturday, the Tour du Haut Var 2015 will take place in the south of France. As usual, this will be a 2 day race, with one stage between Le Cannet des Maures and Seillans and one stage with start and finish in Draguignan.

    In this article you'll find all the details of this race, with the time- and route schedules, the profiles and the race route of the stages on Google Maps/Google Earth.

    The Tour du Haut Var 2015 race route in Google Maps

    The Tour du Haut Var 2015, officially called the Tour Cycliste International du Haut Var-matin will contain a stage of 164.6 and a stage of 194.7 kilometers and Sunday at the end of the afternoon, we'll thus know - after 359.3 kilometers - who will succeed to Carlos Betancur (AG2R La Mondiale) who won the race last year by winning one of the stages and finishing second in the other stage (see the results and the video summaries of the Tour du Haut Var 2014).

    Let's now discover the race routes of the Tour du Haut Var 2015:

    1/ Saturday 21 February 2015 - Le Cannet des Maures > Seillans - 164.6 km

    The first stage on Saturday will start in Le Cannet des Maures, on the Place de la Libération.

    After the km 0 at Château Reillane, the peloton goes off to Vidauban and then to Lorgues where the riders will battle for the first intermediate sprint, in front of the cinema.

    Coming back to the stage start in Le Cannet des Maures, the race route is identical to the stage with the same start city last year: the riders continue until the crossing with the D84 where they turn towards Le Thoronet. Once they've crossed the start line again, they don't go up north until Vidauban but turn right on the D72 until the crossing with the D25 which they'll take northwards via Le Muy and they'll then turn right towards the climb of the Col des Roches Rouges and towards Bagnols-en-Forêt.

    Via Saint-Paul-en-Forêt they'll get on the D562 which they'll take eastwards before they turn towards Montauroux and its famous steep "Mur de Montauroux" which shows a steepness of 20%. Via Callian they almost come back to the same roads since the D19 is parallel to the D562 which they took towards Montauroux.
    They'll continue north-west up to Seillans for a mountain top finish where we'll know who's the first stage winner of the Tour du Haut Var-Matin 2015 and thus the first rider to wear the leader's jersey of the general classification.

    2/ Sunday 22 February 2015 - Draguignan > Draguignan - 194.7 km

    This second stage starting and finishing in Draguignan is much hillier with no less than 5 climbs which follow up on each other. In order to draw the race route of this stage, I chose to cut it up in 5 circuits with different colours, in order to allow you how they follow up on each other. The first circuit is green, the second orange, the third purple, the fourth red and the final circuit around the finish city is blue.

    The race route of this stage is very different from last year's and is laid out on the west side of Draguignan. As a starter, the riders will leave Draguignan on the west side and they'll go on via Flayosc towards Salernes following the D557. Just before they get there, they turn right towards Villecroze and they'll continue their trip towards Aups, where they'll battle for the first intermediate sprint.

    They'll then turn back north-east climbing towards Bastide de Tourtour (2nd category) and coming back on the D557, they'll take the orange circuit orange which will really bring them towards Salernes this time and they'll again turn towards Villecroze once they've visited Salernes. This time they'll leave the road towards Aups very quickly though, to cut off directly towards Tourtour and its 2nd category climb.

    When they get back on the D557, they'll turn left this time instead of right and they'll get on the purple circuit. This circuit brings them back to Flayosc via the feeding zone and once they've crossed the village, they'll take the narrow Route du Flayosquet which will bring them to the Col de la Grange (2nd category). Before they get to Ampuis, they'll turn left back to Tourtour.

    They'll again go south towards the D557 where they'll again turn left (red circuit) and follow the same road towards Flayosc, the Route du Flayosquet and the Col de la Grange, but this time they'll go on until Ampuis, where they'll turn east via Châteaudouble and then south turning around Figanières and they'll get back to the start/finish line in Draguignan where they'll battle for another intermediate sprint.

    They'll continue the red circuit via the D562 up to the crossing with the D54. They'll then turn right on the blue circuit following the same roads as the red circuit until the finish line. However, just afterwards they'll leave the red circuit to take the Vieille Route de Grasse which brings them to the top of the Côte des Tuilières of the 1st category. When they cross the D54 again, they'll come back on the final red circuit final and they'll follow its road back to Draguignan, which they'll again enter from south-east to get back on the finish line, this time for the stage victory, but also for the overall victory of the race since it already comes to an end after these two stages on these beautiful roads!
