Chrono des Nations 2012

Herbier Map

Les Herbiers is nestled in the Vendée department of France and for one weekend each October the town is invaded by the World of Cycling as it hosts TTs for elite and junior, men and women along side a number of family rides and races it is festival of cycling.

This 20.8km time trial marks the traditional end of the European cycling season and is one of the most prestigious TTs on the racing calendar meaning time trial specialists are willing to extend their season by an extra few weeks to take part in this invitation only event.

The route heads out in an easterly direction from Les Herbiers before looping around the Vendée countryside through villages and hamlets and returning into town to finish just a few yards from the start ramp.

Whilst the stage profile below looks “lumpy” it’s deceptive as the relatively short course length accentuates the climbs which at best can be described as gently rolling.
