Turn for sprinters. The specialists who survived the Pyrenees face an auspicious day for them, on Tuesday in the sixteenth stage of the Tour de France, 177 kilometers near Nimes.
The race will pass by the Gard Bridge, the wonder of antiquity that will receive the Tour for the first time in history, about twenty kilometers after the departure at the Arena of Nimes, another testimony of the Roman era.
The route does not present the least mountainous difficulty that could harm the interests of the sprinters. The arrival is located at the end of a line of three kilometers.
Thus, only the possible fans by the wind or the triumph of the foreseeable escape would avoid the final flight between the Elia Viviani, Peter Sagan, Dylan Groenewegen or Caleb Ewan, all winners of a stage in this edition of the gala round.
In the last step of the Tour through the region was the Norwegian Alexander Kristoff, who has not yet released in this edition, which took the glory.
The departure in Nimes is scheduled at 12:20, and the arrival, in the same town in southern France, at 4:26 p.m. (at an average speed of 45 km / h).
