Next stage

The second stage of the Critérium Dauphiné brings a fairly quiet course if the favorites decide to save their efforts for the following days. First there will be two third category passes, the Côte de Désaignes and the Côte de Sain-Agrève; with 60 kilometers to go they will cross the second category Col de Mézilhac; then the intermediate sprint at Le Gerbier De Jonc and finally they will pass with 9 kilometers to go over the Côte de Rohac, to reach the finish line after the descent of this one and a climb that they will find a couple of kilometers before.

Beauchastel

Beauchastel is a village overlooking the confluence of the Rhône and Eyrieux rivers. After passing by the theatre, which hosts concerts and shows throughout the summer, visitors will enjoy a multitude of discoveries as they walk through its narrow streets graced since 1905 by the outsider art of sculpture Alphonse Gurlhie. Nearby, the Dolce Via, reserved for cyclists and walkers, will allow you to discover the Ardèche in a quirky way along a cycling route ideal for a family outing which will take you from one bank of the river to the other. As for the ViaRhôna, it provides tourists on two wheels a variety of panoramas through the emblematic landscapes of vineyards, ruins of castles, fields of lavender or olive trees, and offers delicious breaks to sample local culinary specialities. As a host to the Critérium du Dauphiné, Beauchastel confirms its commitment to cycling, following the passage of Paris-Nice and the regular visits made by the women’s race TCFIA (Tour cycliste féminin international de l'Ardèche).

La Voulte-sur-Rhône

La Voulte-sur-Rhône is the administrative centre of an administrative district with approximately 5,000 inhabitants, and has developed at the foot of the hills on the right bank of the Rhône river. The castle overlooking the town was built on a rocky outcrop between the 12th and 14th centuries, with its fortified centre forming the heart of the old village. Sport has always occupied an important place in the history of the town, with the highlight quite naturally being the unforgettable crowning of the town’s rugby union team as French champions in 1970. Certified as a 2-star graded ‘active and sporty town’ in 2019, La Voulte-sur-Rhône has put in place a dynamic and determined sports policy. As a gateway to two gentle mobility networks, the Dolce Via and ViaRhôna, the town has chosen to give pride of place to events promoting “leisure cycling”, whilst also playing a full part in the cycling development policy implemented by the Ardèche department authorities
