After a loop around the Vouglans dam, the course heads on to Moirans en Montagne, known for its toy production, via the Col du Cerisier. The cols of Crozatiers and Nanchez open the route to Prénovel and the Chaux des Prés in the upper Jurassic coombs prior to a fast descent into Saint-Claude, site of the stage’s first feed station, known for its manufacture of tobacco pipes and diamond cutting.
On leaving Saint Claude, riders will cross the start line for the day’s timed 9 km climb to Cinquétral.
On to the village of Longchaumois in the Upper Jura prior to a descent via the “Haut Crêt” back to Saint Claude. After a second and copious feed station, the col de la Croix de la Serra, is the final big difficulty of the stage that will take riders back to the event start in Arbent.
