Paris-Nice 2021 Route stage 2: Oinville-sur-Montcient - Amilly

Paris-Nice 2021 stage 2Monday 8 March - Stage 2 in Paris-Nice takes the riders from Oinville-sur-Montcient to Amilly. The 188 kilometres route is virtually flat.

Oinville-sur-Montcient lies just north of Paris and Amilly is on the same latitude as Orléans. So Paris-Nice starts to go south in stage 2. It happens on exposed roads, so echelons could be lurking.

In calm weather the race is bound to come down to a regular bunch sprint. The route features a number of undulations in the first half, with the Côte des Granges-le-Roi (1.3 kilometres at 4%) peaking out, but the second half is as flat as it gets.

Amilly hosted a Paris-Nice finish in 2017 after an echelon marked race. Sonny Colbrelli took the win, while crosswinds were also present in last year’s 2nd stage, which was won by Giacomo Nizzolo.

The first thee riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while two intermediate sprints – at kilometre 91.5 and 154.5 – come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
