    The Critérium du Dauphiné 2015 race route on Google Maps/Google EarthThis Sunday, the 67th edition of the Critérium du Dauphiné will start in Ugine (Savoie) for a mountaineous ride of 1,212.5 kilometers.

    Some sort of a mini Tour de France, as a preparation on the Grande Boucle which will start in Utrecht in less than 30 days! A few elements of the Tour will be present in this Critérium du Dauphiné 2015 including mainly the climb of the already famous Lacets de Montvernier and the stage Digne-les-Bains > Pra Loup!

    In this article you'll discover all the details of the race route of this Dauphiné, including the time- and route schedules, the stage profiles and the race route on Google Maps/Google Earth, which will give you all the information to know where the race will come by.

    The Critérium du Dauphiné 2015 race route on Google Maps, the time- and route schedules and the stage profiles

    The Critérium du Dauphiné 2015 race route is made up of 7 stages in line and one team time trial. Taking place on Tuesday, this time trial could allow a team to take over the general classification but if that's the case, that'll only be temporary because there will still be 5 other difficult stages which will allow the climbers to gain some time.

    1/ Sunday 7 June 2015 - Ugine > Albertville - 131.5 km

    The first stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné 2015 will start in the small town Ugine in the Savoie department and the stage will be short with only 131.5 kilometers.

    The stage will have a particular form because it's only 7 kilometers after the km 0 that the riders will already get to the finish city, Albertville. That's however only where the stage really starts because, after a short visit south-east of Albertville - via Tours-en-Savoie, Saint-Paul-sur-Isère, La Bâthie and back to Tours-en-Savoie and Albertville, which includes the climb of the Côte d'Esserts-Blay -, the riders will get on a circuit west of the finish city. They first do one lap on a circuit of 19.5 kilometers (in purple on the map), with the Côte du Villard and the Côte du Cruet and than 5 laps on a similar circuit (16 km; in yellow on the map) which however cuts off before the Côte du Cruet and thus only contains the Côte du Villard which the riders will thus climb 6 times.

    2/ Monday 8 June 2015 - Le Bourget-du-Lac > Parc des Oiseaux - Villars-les-Dombes - 173 km

    The second stage will start in Le Bourget-du-Lac, on the side of the lake, and the riders will immediately start the climb of the Col du Chat (2nd category). About sixty kilometers further, the riders will climb the Col de Cuvéry (1st category), on top of which they'll also find the feeding zone.

    They'll be about halfway to their destination of the day, the Parc des Oiseaux in Villars-les-Dombes which saw a visit of the Critérium du Dauphiné for the last time in 2013, with an individual time trial (see the photos).

    3/ Tuesday 9 June 2015 - Roanne > Montagny - team time trial - 24.5 km

    After these two stages in line, there will be a timed effort. And this time it will not be an individual time trial like in 2013 at the Parc des Oiseaux, no, it'll be a team time trial between Roanne and Montagny over a distance of 24.5 kilometers.

    Without any big difficulties, the race route does however contain a small climb, followed by a progressive climb towards the finish.

    After about fourty kilometers, the riders get on top of the first difficulty of the day, the Col des Léques (3rd category) and about 25 kilometers further they'll have already climbed the Col des Toutes Aures (3rd category).

    After the feeding zone in Annot, things start to get serious with the climb of the Col de la Colle Saint-Michel of the 2nd category and, close to the finish, the climb of the Col d'Allos (1st category, 14 km at 5.5%). After the descent of this last climb, they'll still have to do the final climb towards the finish at Pra Loup.
