Tour de France 2021 Route stage 3: Lorient - Pontivy

Tour de France 2021 stage 3Monday 28 June - The 3rd stage of the Tour de France is likely to see a bunch sprint. At 182.9 kilometres, the riders travel from Lorient to Pontivy, where the finish lies near the enchanting Château des Rohan.

Lorient hosted the start of the 5th stage of the 2018 Tour de France. The race went to Quimper, where Peter Sagan sprinted to triumph on the slightly uphill arrival.

The last line near Château des Rohan in Pontivy is less demanding. In fact, a 3.5 kilometers downhill flies down to a flat finale.

The Castle was built in the 15th century and has seen its fair share of battles. Two massive circular towers at the front were used to drop burning objects on the attackers. The battle for the stage win will be hard, but not as violent.

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