Tour of Britain 2022 Route stage 3: Durham - Sunderland
Tuesday 6 September - At 163.6 kilometres, the 3rd stage of the Tour of Britain travels on a lumpy route through the North Pennines and County Durham before finishing in Sunderland. Most elevation gain is crammed together in the first half of the race, while the second is much more sprinters friendly.
Shortly after the start the riders enter an unclassified climb of 2.6 kilometres at 4.7%. It’s a gentle warm-up to the Chapel Fell, which is 4.1 kilometres long and averaging 7.8%. The route then continues through the North Pennines toward Barnard Castle and shortly the riders enter the second climb of the day. Billy Lane is 1.8 kilometres long and averaging 7.1%. The summit is the midway marker.
A rolling descent leads onto an undulating last part of the race. Only the short climb to High Moorsley stands out – 1.2 kilometres long and averaging 5.3%. Still 19 kilometres to go after moving through the village. Which is a virtually flat section on straight roads towards the 500 metres home straight on West Wear Street in Sunderland.
The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
