Stage 6 from Rasteau to Gap could prove one of the most decisive of this year's Paris-Nice. Covering 173 kilometres, the parcours includes an opening drag up to the Cat. 2 Col de Fontaube, followed immediately by the first Cat. 1 climb to the Col de Macuègne. A mid-stage regrouping will be possible, but another double dose of climbing finishes the day with the Cat. 1 Col de la Sentinelle and Col de Manse. A long descent completes the stage into Gap, but the back to back climbs could be enough to provoke some splits in the general classification.
