Monday, July 7th - Stage 3 of the 2014 Tour de France is the last on English soil. 159 kilometres and ending in the capital in the same spot as the 2012 Olympics. (Route and profile maps)
Tour de France 2014 route stage 3: Cambridge > London
The English are certainly using their time in the spotlight to show off some of their finer towns. Yesterday, riders left from the historical town of York, today they leave the equally historic picturesque town of Cambridge. Cambridge became a city in 1951 and is known throughout the world for its university.
Riders head straight for the capital today passing Epping Forest and Essex. Nothing to trouble the big men today and perhaps a chance for Cav to take the win in London that he so desperately craved in the 2012 Olympics.
The last time the Tour de France visited London was for the 2007 prologue won by Fabian Cancellara.
