Tour de France 2021 Route stage 4: Redon - Fougères

Tour de France 2021 stage 4Tuesday 29 June - The 4th stage of the Tour de France is played out in inland Brittany. At 150.4 kilometres, the riders travel on virtually flat terrain from Redon to Fougères.

Fougères hosted the Tour de France three times in the past ten years. Mostly it served as a start venue, while the 2015 edition saw a sprint finish. Those were the glory days of Mark Cavendish and he outgunned André Greipel and Peter Sagan on the line.

A new sprint finish is on the cards. Elevation gain is nearly absent on the roads between Redon and Fougères.

Situated on both sides of the Nançon river, Fougères is an enchanting town with old timber-framed houses and a Castle flanked by towers and ramparts. The feudal construction was built on a rock emerging from a swamp surrounded by a loop of the Nançon river, so it was virtually impossible te besiege.

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

    During the daily commentary I would like to see a map occasionally so that one can see where the riders are and have an idea of the route and the distances. It is a Tour but the coverage includes no geographical context.
