Luxembourgers talk about Munneref when referring to the departure place of stage 4 in the Tour de France, Germans prefer Bad Mondorf, while the French say the stage leaves from Mondorf-les-Bains. The village in the south of Luxembourg is home to the Schleck brothers.
The route of the 4th stage in the Tour de France travels on flat to gently rolling roads. Two back-to-back climbs with 37 kilometres left are literally standing out – the first is 4 kilometres at 3%, the second 1 kilometre at 4%. No sprinter will be alarmed by this, yet they should be aware of the last kilometre – which is a false flat.
The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprint (at kilometre 157.5) comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
