Flat, flatter, flattest. Sure, not as flat as the Maldives – which rises to an elevation of 2.4 metres at its highest point -, yet the 3rd stage of Paris-Nice is coming close. The difference between the highest and the lowest point en route is 128 metres. So it is fair to say this is a prime opportinuty for fast men.
Sam Bennett, Caleb Ewan and Dylan Groenewegens are among the fastest finishers in Paris-Nice. The Dutchman is outstanding, winning the first two stages and leading the GC.
The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while two intermediate sprints (at kilometre 24.5 and kilometre 182) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
