2019 C du Dauphiné stage 7 St. Genix - Les Sept 133.5 km

14 Jun 2019 21:20

2019 Critérium du Dauphiné stage 7 Saint-Genix-les-Villages - Les Sept Laux-Pipay 133.5 km

Saturday - The 7th stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné is a mountainous race of 133.5 kilometres with an elevation gain of 4,150 metres. Expect the fireworks to detonate on the short and explosive course to Les Sept Laux-Pipay. The final climb is 19 kilometres at 6.9%

The route is well-balanced with a new peak every 30 kilometres or so. Following an undulating first 35 kilometres the stage kicks into gear at the foot of the Col de l’Épine, which is a 7.6 kilometres climb at 7.2%. Up next is the 12 kilometres long Col du Granier. The average gradient of this climb sits at 5.8%. It has been a while since the Granier last saw a pro-peloton. The Tour de France climbed the pass in 2012 in a stage that was won by David Millar.

Following a false flat section in the valley the Dauphiné tackles the Col de Marcieu: 10.4 kilometres at 6.1%. The riders reach the summit after 100.5 kilometres before a descent ushers in the grande finale. The first three climbs are 1st categorie, the final haul up is hors catégorie.

The Montée de Pipay is a 19 kilometres toil with an average gradient of 6.9%. It is a steady test with no double digits, the challenge is the sheer length of it. With the final climb the Dauphiné lives up to its promise to test unknown ascents, as the Montée de Pipay was not climbed by the pro-peloton since the 1980 Tour de France. So none of the riders will be familiar with the drag up to the ski resort of Les Sept Laux-Pipay.

Starts at 12.55 CET TV from 15.00 CET

Yates, Bardet, Pinot, Quintana, Woods, Kruijswijk, Porte, Poels etc etc - all need to prove themselves. Time will tell.

No but seriously, I could see Buchmann sneak away on the climb. Buchmann will get more leash than many of the other favorites even if he is just as good a climber.

If someone like Quintana moves, he will be shot down immediately by Yates.

My guess: A leading duo of Buchmann/Pinot take 30 seconds on a group of chasers (Yates, Quintana, Fuglsang and Kruijswijk). Kruijswijk will be doing 90% of the chasing while the other three will be playing cat and mouse against each other. Dan Martin a bit further down followed by a group of Bardet, Porte and Poels around the minute and a half mark.

Might be that you're trolling now...

My comment was referring to Kirby butchering Buchmann's name everytime while making the impression that they are best buddies.

But I agree with you, Emanuel for the win!

Yeah I have a very hard time seeing this go to the break. It's the 1 big climb of the Dauphine, nobody is gonna be too afraid to for it.

Also, gaps are sufficiently close that everyone who needs time wants the bonifications in play.

Is the broadcast actually starting at 15.00? I see 15.30, 15.45 and even 16.00.

Pinot to win stage by 20 seconds over Bardet, Yates, and Crushweak and GC.

Tonton to be MIA for 24 hours in celebration causing a worry.

Where do I sign ;) .

Tibo doesn't like to be bored, so short stages suit him well. The final climb should suit him well, it's a stage that he marked with a big bloody X. No doubt that Thibaut Pinot will attack: whether it backfires remains to be seen. I don't see him outside of a top-3 though.

Will TJVG crack again after looking good? Quintana could decide to make a statement; now that Froome is out of the Tour, maybe he'll find his guts...assert himself as the boss leading to July. Kruijswijk is a serious customer. Romain Bardet is a question mark, not to be underestimated for the stage win: he needs to build some morale. A couple more can do well.

I think that this stage will deliver entertainment-wise.

As an American, I hope Tejay does good but I don't want to give him bad luck.

Reviewing the GC times I have realized Pinot is 25" behind, thus he will win by 30".


I have been pretty wrong before though. :o

The break will be gobbled up. Too much climbing and the GC teams will be dialing up the pace. Should be the end of of TJVG unless he finds his old climbing legs. Be interested to see the performances of some of the Tour riders especially Porte and Quintana. I expect Pinot to attack and the last climb is probably a pretty good one for him. Maybe Fuglsang as well.

I predict Nairo Quintana will win this stage.

I predict Nairo Quintana won't win this stage.

I predict two thirds of my predictions will come true.

As a diesel climber, the final ascent is taylor-made for him. Still, I think Pinot will win this stage.

Dumoulin to drop everyone.

It could happen. Looks like a really hard stage that probably won't see any attacks until the last 6-5 km. There's a point in the profile that goes from 9 percent down to under 6, which might be where we see some of the separation.

I think Porte will struggle as he's not quite in form just yet. Really hope he can stay upright at the Tour and give a good showing. Pinot will attack, not sure if he will have enough to win. Yates and NQ will cancel each other out, leaving the way for Fuglsang to take the win.

1. Fuglsand 2. Pinot 3. NQ 4. Yates 5. Poels. the rest...…..

Can't believe it's not on Eurosport til 6pm!
