Stage 8 – 200 km (124 miles) – Hilly
The road to Saint-Étienne will have a sweet perfume of Beaujolais wine on its first part but t’ose 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 meters of ascending elevation!
