Paris-Nice 2017 Route stage 3: Chablis – Chalon sur Saône

Paris-Nice 2017 stage 3Tuesday, 7 March 2017 - Stage 3 in Paris-Nice is played out on a 190 kilometres course leading from Chablis to Chalon-sur-Saône. The route is the perfect tonic for a bunch sprint to ignite.

After leaving Chablis the race runs on rolling roads until Côte de Grandmont is crested at kilometre 128. This is no Stelvio though, merely the first KOM-climb, averaging 4.9% in 2.4 kilometres. The undulatory landscape becomes slightly more rugged and with 162 kilometres done the Côte de Charrecey appears. This 2.1 kilometres climb at 6.7% is the last uphill section of the day. The drop leads to the flat finale.

Departure place Chablis is famous for its white wines, while Chalon-sur-Saône is the largest city in the Saône-et-Loire department.

The first three riders on the line in Chalon-sur-Saône take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds. Two intermediate sprints (after 55 and 173 kilometres) come with 3, 2 and 1 second each.
