Elevation of the stage
The route from Forcalquier to Manosque by mountain bike
This stage begins with a mix of paths and technical descents on sometimes abrupt trails before reaching the typical domes you’d expect at the Observatoire Astronomique de Haute Provence. After Saint-Michel-l'Observatoire, the stage continues along a succession of minor roads and paths, with a last climb to cross the Col de la Mort d'Imbert pass. Enjoy the final descent to Manosque, this town the end point of this Grande Traversée à VTT.
