It's a spectacularly beautiful and cultural city, being a former outpost of the Roman empire, but the teams won't get any chance to take it in on this stage. Having navigated through the city past many famous landmarks and through tough technical sections, the course heads out of the city onto longer straighter roads, and even takes in a 3rd Category climb. Team tactics will be paramount on this starting stage, with a grand finish at the Arènes de Nîmes, a Roman amphitheatre dating back to 70AD! Join Dan to recce this spectacular route that the pro teams will be taking in just a few days time.
