Tour de France 2022 Route stage 2: Roskilde - Nyborg

Tour de France 2022Saturday 2 July - The 2nd stage at Le Tour is another test in Denmark. The 202.2 kilometres race goes from Roskilde to Nyborg. Altough featuring some modest climbs, a bunch sprint is the most likely outcome.

The riders clip into their pedals in Roskilde, some 30 kilometres west of Copenhagen. They continue further west to enter the Odsherred peninsula, which landscape was formed 17,000 years ago during the latter part of the last glacial period. The only three classified climbs are situated in this region.

The riders tackle the Côte d’Asnæs Indelukke, Côte d’Høve Stræde and Côte de Kårup Strandbakke within 25 kilometres before the route continues on the flat towards the finish in Nyborg. Just one obstacle could shake things up a bit. Actually, the Storebælsbroen is not a climb at all, it’s a 18 kilometres long bridge across the Great Belt that links together the eastern and western parts of Denmark. But since it’s extremely exposed the wind could have an impact. Moreover, the Storebælsbroen does climb, although at shallow gradients.

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

Another interesting read: favourites to win the race to Nyborg.
