The final stage of the 2018 Haute Route Alps features 2 cols before reaching the finish line on the Mediterranean in Nice. The main difficulty of the day will be the Col de Saint Martin; it rises to 1507m over approximately 15km. Following the summit of Saint Martin, only the small ascent up the Col d’Èze remains between the peloton and the finish line of this 9th edition. Finishers will have completed an eye-watering 787km of riding with 20,650m of climbing by the time they reach the finish line on the seventh stage.
