Tour de France 2014 Route stage 3: Cambridge (GB) - London (GB)
Monday, July 7th - Stage 3 of the 2014 Tour de France is the last on English soil. It is a 155 kilometres long flat ride and ends in the capital in the same spot as the 2012 Olympics: The London Mall. (Slideshow route/profile)
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.
With an eastward bent riders head for the capital today, passing Epping Forest and Essex along the way. Nothing to trouble the big men and a sure chance for the sprinters to shine. The finale is on the same route as the 2012 Olympics.
The last time the Tour de France visited London was for the 2007 prologue won by Fabian Cancellara.
The stage begins at 13:15 CET and the finish is expected around 16:50.
