Tour de France 2016 Route stage 3: Granville – Angers

Tour de France stage 3Monday, July 4, 2016 – Stage 3 leads from Granville to Angers. At 223.5 kilometres, the race is among the longest stages in the 2016 Tour de France. Expect the race to boil down to a bunch sprint on a slightly uphill arrival.

Angers is located in the province of Anjou. The town hosted the Tour de France seventeen times. The last time was in 2004, when Tom Boonen took the stage.

Back in 1972, Eddy Merckx won the prologue Angers, thus laying the foundation for his overall victory that year.

Expect stage 3 in the Tour de France to boil down to a bunch sprint. Yet, it will be for the fast men who are strong enough to power on even when the arrival is slightly uphill. The last kilometre goes up at 2.5%.

Riders who are eyeing up KOM points have to do business at Côte de Villedieu-les-Poêles – 4th category and crested with 25,5 kilometres done.

The first three riders on the line take time bonuses at 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
