Stage 6 - Risoul - Auron

112km | 3200M + · Friday August 31st

The sixth stage of the 2018 Haute Route Alps will feature another two major cols and a summit finish in the mountain resort of Auron. Two giants of the Alps feature on this stage, namely the Col de Vars and Col de la Bonette. With a summit at 2,109m, the col de Vars is a mighty 20km in length and rises over 1,000m out of the valley. The ascent to the Col de la Bonette that ensues is only slightly shorter, but is markedly steeper as it rises to 2,715m. The final ascent to Auron will test the resolve of riders after what promises to be a long day in the saddle.
