Tour de France 2021 Route stage 2: Perros-Guirec - Mûr-de-Bretagne

Tour de France 2021 stage 2Sunday 27 June - The 2nd stage of the Tour de France finishes in Mûr-de-Bretagne. The climb into the village is perfect voor punchers. It's 2 kilometres long and the first half is especially steep. As the race concludes with a local circuit the punchy ascent features twice.

Three years ago La Grande Boucle visited Mûr-de-Bretagne for the last time. Daniel Martin took the spoils, thus succeeding Alexis Vuillermoz (2015) and Cadel Evans (2011).

The climb into Mûr-de-Bretagne is 2 kilometres long and the average gradients sits at 6.9%. The first half is the most tricky part, as it goes up at almost 10%.

The first three summit finishes in Mûr-de-Bretagne were identical. The peloton tackled the climb at high speeds, as if preparing for a bunch sprint. This time the riders come almost to a standstill before the climb, as the steep first half appears right after a sharp turn.
