Monday, 9 July 2018 – At 35 kilometers, the third phase of the Tour de France (tdf 2018) brings the main group time trial in La Grande Boucle since 2015. The race is played out on undulating streets close Cholet.
The group time trial is played out in and close Cholet. The town facilitated the tour de France three times previously. Félicien Vervaecke won in 1936, Jeroen Blijlevens dashed to triumph in 1998, while Stefan Schumacher controlled to the win in 2008’s chronorace, despite the fact that the German was excluded in the wake of testing positive on doping.
The TTT sets off on wide roads in the focal point of Cholet. On Road Francis Bouet the groups hit a 700 meters move at 5% preceding the course proceeds on long straight streets.
At kilometer 7 the lanes get to some degree littler for 2 kilometers before the completely open streets are back, which clearly is ideal for the groups. Another 700 meters move at 5% with 16 kilometers done and afterward it’s set for La Séguinière on a genuinely simple course.
