Tour de France 2014: Stage 3 - Flat roads to London

Epping forestThe 3rd stage of the 2014 Tour de France promises to be a fast one. The distance is a relatively short 155 kilomtres and there are no categorized climbs between Cambridge and London. (Slideshow route/profile)

This does not mean that the ride is completely flat however. The route contains several short climbs between the start in Cambridge and the finish in London. The highest point of the stage is only 108 metres above sea level, and marks the spot where the intermediate sprint in Epping Forest is contested. After the more serious climbing in the previous stage, today’s bumps won’t trouble even the heavier riders

There’s a short climb 10 kilometres from the finish but it is neither named nor categorised. The finish is at 10 metres above see level.

The 3rd stage is one of the flattest stages in this year’s Tour.
