Had to look twice when I read "classic descent finish in La Punt" in a preview :o

Profile is good except someone uploaded not the whole thing.
Only showed 160 km of the course which was 166,7km long :/

It's not someone, it's the official profile. See for instance: http://www.tourdesuisse.ch/en/tds-2017/stage-plan/6th-stage/

I think this profile for stage 7 of the Tour of Utah might be slightly exaggerated...

What about the smooth gradient to 3711 m of altitude of La Vuelta!

Quick reminder, there is someone out there who thought, making the profile like this would be a good idea.

It's this and that MTF finish that had a few km downhill that wins it for me

There's not way to get a more detailed version of each individual stage?

Stage 6 of TDU. Apart from the vertical scale labels being messed up, we also have mountain points at the (apparently) lowest point of the circuit.

lol, generally TDU is a bit better than they used to be, the last km ones have never made sense though.

www.cyclingprofiles.com.au do the best ones for me, they are the only profiles that give you all the information you'd get if you mapped it yourself.

I don't think, that's how Angliru should look like. Actually, they tried to zoom in the last 10km by stretching out the x-axis to the point, that they're the length of 30km.

velowire images resists deeplinking, so it's better to find a different host for the same image ;)

Ah yes, I posted a few of the 2007 Vuelta profiles a while back on here, they had that same problem of stretching out the climbs because they were the important part of the stage, but at the expense of making the actual difficulty of the stages unreadable. They did introduce the 2008 parcours with the same profile styles, hence the image you have there, but luckily before the actual race they updated the profile to the type used until 2015, so we got a more realistic and readable profile:
