Details of stage eight - a lot of really nasty kicks in this route, not the best day for the Sprinters
The road to Saint-?Étienne will have a sweet perfume of Beaujolais wine on its first part but to those not keen to climb will then suffer a real way of the cross. Having to face the Croix de Montmain, the Croix de Thel, the Croix Paquet, the Croix de Part and the côte d’Aveize. They will witness all types of climbs. On the menu: 3 800 metres of ascending elevation!
