Tour de France 2014: Stage 4 - Bumpy roads in France and Belgium
Tuesday, July 8th, 2014 - The 4th stage of the Tour 2014 is the first on French soil and consists of 163.5 kilometres, traveling from Le Touquet-Paris-Plage to Lille. Two category 4 climbs but certainly nothing overly troublesome. (Slideshow route/profile)
After 34 kilometres the riders are on top of the first hill, the Côte Campagnette. The road then slopes down another 15 kilometres until the highest point of the day is reached at 220 metres.
The intermediate sprint after 92 kilometres is fought on a non-categorized hill at 152 metres.
Mont Noir is located on the French-Belgian border. It is a climb of 1.3 kilometres at 5.7%, that in the past (1957, 1993, 1994 and 1995) figured in Gent-Wevelgem. Riders may know the slope from the Four Days of Dunkirk, the Three Days of West Flanders and the Circuit Franco-Belge.
