BeMC 2018 - stage 2
La Roche - Bertogne - La Roche
100 km - 3050 hm
The queen stage of the BeMC is again on Saturday. The stage has a very atypical build-up with in the first 40 km a lot of fast and easy ridable parts, based on the first stage of the 2017 race. Past Wyompont, one short but steep climb after another close to the river Ourthe follows. After the second feedstation near Ferme au Pont, a complete new part with some rough sections and a extreme steep climb, followed by a fun and fast singletrack descent will follow. After crossing the road between Ortho and Bertognewe’ll join the “classic” course of the Houffalize stage with among others the descend of the steep “wall of death”. Between Warempage and the last feedstation close to Nadrin, it gets a litte easier.
The final with the legendary crossing of the Ourthe remains with 38 meters of climbing per kilometer far from simple.
