Tour Down Under 2016 Route stage 3: Glenelg – Campbelltown

Tour Down Under stage 3Thursday January 21th, 2016 - In 139 kilometres stage leads from Glenelg to Campbelltown. The race is mostly on rolling roads, but the finale brings a vicious cimb that could hurt GC-contenders with steepest parts at 15%.

Straight from the start the road rises at a 5% grade for 3 kilometres, so expect escapees to trie to break free. The rest of the day it goes up and down before the finale kicks in.

The climb up Corkscrew Road is 3.7 kilometres at 6.4%. This might not sound very frightening, but it’s a climb with at least ten hairpins and the steepest parts goes up at 15%. The 7.4 kilometres finale is downill.

Edition 2014 saw exactly the same finale in stage 3 with Cadel Evans attacking at the climb up Corkscrew Road and soloing to victory.

Last year Campbelltown hosted stage 1. After a different finale escapee Jack Bobridge brought the flowers home and took the leader’s jersey.

The pack leaves at 11:44 am and the finish is expected around 2:44 pm – local time. The first three riders get 10, 6 and 4 bonification seconds.
