2019 Critérium du Dauphiné stage 3: Le Puy-en-Velay - Riom 177 km
Start 12.25 CET TV 15.00
Tuesday - At 177 kilometres, the 3rd stage of the Critérium du Dauphiné presents the sprinters an opportunity to shine. Following a race with four moderate climbs the finale is fast and flat.
The first 50 kilometres include the most uphill metres of the day. The start in Le Puy-en-Velay lies at an elevation of 697 metres and the Dauphiné climbs to more than 1,000 metres before descending to Arlanc. Three moderate climbs appear in quick succession after approximately 100 kilometres and the rest of the route is played out on the flat.

Too deep inland for the wind, isn't it?
And sheltered well.
There's a chance in the final 25k's or so, but favourable conditions are needed.

There has to be something for the sprinters in mini TDF, after all.

Yeah... The non-violent wind throughout the day.
Postcard stage.

It’ll be a hard day for Bora to keep a lid on things. The other teams who do have sprinters, won’t be keen on helping the chase. Maybe DiData.

Weather forecast - showers and 15C tops ... like Monday. Nobody will want to be in the break today with the sprinters looking for the win. Where's Sho? :D

Nobody wanted to work with them in Romandie either and they ended up letting Kung get away and take the stage. The danger of being the heavy favrouite on a flat stage.

Definite sprint. I think DQS will help out with the chase, for Hodeg. I expect Bennett to be too quick, however.

on paper, defnitely. But he hasn't raced much recently, nor is he supposed to for the coming eight weeks or so (nothing on his program until August apart from the National Champs, I guess). So form-wise he may be a bit off

Berhane and Pacher get the "joy" of being the breakaway - as the rain comes down -

See what you've done, people...
We're getting 75 kilometres of today's rainy, flat, stage, and just 45 of yesterday's and Sunday's.
Just keep complaining.

Assuming the gap is going to be kept small in this weather. Wonder if we'll see late attacks.

Nobody seems to be in any particular hurry. Everyone still cold from yesterday or just no point today?

Mid-week Sunday ride. Should have let some fans join in for an "experience" riding with the pros.

If you're wondering where the rain has gone - it's here.
And if you're not - the Sun is shining.
... no kidding.
