Stage 2From Le Diable to La Fée ​

20km / 1300m d+

This second day doesn’t wait before warming up the thighs: it’s the superb ascent towards the Diable, with a beautiful climbing segment to finish! Then, it’s a long descent to the 2 Alpes area and then in these rather wild corners. And here again, you have to save some strength for the end!

Climber: Le Diable (1Km / 25%)
Sprinters: Le Thuit (0,8km / -6%)

Stage 3The descent of Le Glacier

21km / 800m d+ / 2300m d-

Prepare your breath and your muscular fibres, it’s going to be a blast!
A start at 3200m altitude before reaching 1500m altitude 10 kilometres further on. And it’s worth it, with very high mountain scenery and the possibility of running in eternal snow.

The segments.

Climber: Les Perrons (0.5km / 14%)
