Paris-Nice 2017 Route stage 2: Rochefort en Yvelines – Amilly (Loiret)
Monday, 6 March 2017 - At 195 kilometres, the route of the 2nd stage in Paris-Nice runs from Rochefort-en-Yvelines to Amilly. Chances are the race will boil down to a bunch sprint.
Six years ago it was the last time Amilly hosted a Paris-Nice arrival. Greg Henderson sprinted to victory ahead of Matthew Goss, while a young Peter Sagan finished fifth.
The first stages in Paris-Nice tend to be flat, which has been the case for years. After all, when leaving Paris the geography is like that – flat, at least until halfway down the map of France. Last year’s Race to the Sun started with a prologue and the next day Nacer Bouhanni sprinted to victory.
The route to Amilly is no exception. After 9 kilometres the riders tackle the Côte des Granges, a 1.5 kilometre climb at 3.1%. It is the only chance to earn KOM-point as the rest of the race is played out on flat roads.
The firs three riders on the line in Amilly take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the two intermediate sprints (after 31.5 and 156.5 kilometres) come with 3, 2 and 1 second each.
