Tour of Britain 2019 Route stage 3: Berwick-upon-Tweed - Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Monday 9 September - At 183.2 kilometres, the 3rd stage of the Tour of Britain serves a North of Tyne race. The riders set off from Berwick-upon-Tweed to finish slightly uphill in Newcastle’s city centre.
The picturesque route takes in Northumberland and North Tyneside before a finish in Newcastle’s city centre, where the Tour of Britain didn’t finish for ten years. In 2009, Kai Reus won with a late solo attack. It was the first ever Dutch victory on the Tour of Britain.
The route runs along the coast. The riders will enjoy magnificent views of Bamburgh Castle and Warkworth Castle. The three intermediate climbs – Ford Common, Weetwood Bank, Lyham Hill – are all served in the first half of the race.
After passing through Whitley Bay, Tynemouth, North Shields and Wallsend inside the final 25 kilometres, the finale will see the race heading alongside the banks of the River Tyne on the Quayside, before the final turn on to Dean Street and Grey Street for the ultimate dash to the line. The last kilometre is a false flat.
The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprints (at kilometre 67.2, at kilometre 105.6, and at kilometre 155.2) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
