Tour de France em números

O Tour de France enters stage 3 and it’s time for the sprinters to have some fun.

Mark Cavendish will be in the running for what would be a first Tour win in five years, though Caleb Ewan and perhaps Arnaud Demare will be circled as the men to beat here.

It’s been a dramatic first couple of days in the Tour with a fan causing chaos as the peloton crashed, enquanto police in France are on the lookout to find the culprit. Mathieu van der Poel took stage 2 and with it the Yellow Jersey, with the Dutch rider already injecting some thrills to this year’s race with his astonishing double ascent of the Mur-de-Bretagne.

Defending champion Tadej Pogacar e 2020 runner-up Primoz Roglic came second and third and have so far negotiated the first two stages safely as the pair look to battle it out for glory once more.

Weather could also play a part in today’s stage, with thunderstorms in Pontivy forecast for Monday afternoon, follow all the live updates and reaction below:

Etapa 3 antevisão: Cavendish seeks first Tour de France stage win in five years

We head into stage three of the Tour de France with the memory of Mathieu van der Poel’s breathtaking performance fresh in our minds. The Dutch sensation claimed a ride for the ages on the Mur de Bretagne to take not only his first Tour de France stage victory, but also the lead of the race as he pulled on the yellow jersey.

Stage three is one designed for the pure sprinters, rather than the likes of Van der Poel and Julian Alaphilippe. It has just two categorised climbs, both around 2km in length. With that said, never right off the flying Dutchman. Wout van Aert will want to make his mark on the Tour given his two Classics rivals have already won stages. But it is unlikely he will have the raw pace over 200m to beat the fastest men in the world.

Given Irishman Sam Bennett is not at the race due to an injury, Caleb Ewan will be the outright favourite to take stage three. The Australian said before the start of the season that he wants to win a stage of each Grand Tour. He has already claimed victory at the Giro d’Italia, so a win here would leave him just the Vuelta a Espana to go.

Tour de France stage three: Day for the sprinters

Everyone recovered from yesterday? I’ve just about cleared my throat after Mathieu van der Poel’s sensational victory and taking the yellow jersey.

Today though, it’s all about the sprinters. Who’s your money on? Caleb Ewan? Arnaud Demare? Or could we dare to dream that it might be Mark Cavendish?

Promises to be another thrilling stage.

Etapa 3 predição

Alaphilippe and Van der Poel stole the show in the first two stages as they made the most of punchy uphill finishes. But stage three is undoubtedly one for the more pure sprinters. It’s always difficult to predict who will raise their hands aloft at the end of the first flat stage. But given everyone is fresh, it often goes to the man with the best raw pace.

That man is probably Caleb Ewan, although Arnaud Demare promises to push him very close. You imagine Cavendish may go a few stages before challenging for the win, but don’t write him off for this one.
