Tour de France 2022 Route stage 3: Vejle - Sønderborg
Sunday 3 July - The sprinters are treated in the first three days of the Tour de France. At 182 kilometres, the race from Vejle to Sønderborg features hardly any obstacles.
Small wonder. At an elevation of almost 171 metres, Møllehøj is the highest ‘mountain’ in Denmark. And the 3rd stage gets nowhere near the hill on the Jutland peninsula.
The riders clip into their pedals in Vejle. Shortly after a local loop of 23 kilometres the first of three KOM ascents comes in the shape of the Côte de Koldingvej, a climb of 1 kilometre at 6%. The route continues in southerly direction to Kolding.
After moving through Kasper Asgreen’s domicile – where he started cycling at the age of fourteen – the Tour de France visits the Danish beaches. In proximity to the Little Belt strait the riders tackle the other two climbs, Côte de Hejlsminde Strand and Côte de Genner Strand, before the last 60 kilometers of the stage are as good as flat.
The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
