Stage 3Anvers / Huy

Start 13h40 (Local time)
  • Rodriguez King of the Mur, Froome back in yellow

    The 2012 winner of the Flèche wallonne Joaquim «Purito» Rodriguez of Katusha found the way to glory again atop the Mur de Huy on a crash marred stage.

Tourist attractions

Anvers

Like millions of travellers in the history of old Europe, the Tour de France will this year enter Belgium through the Antwerp harbour. A plural and multi-secular trade capital, the city also witnessed the biggest honour in terms of sport by hosting the 1920 Olympic Games. The City of diamonds is also linked to the Tour de France's destiny. It was indeed on the course of the first edition that left from abroad, taking off from Amsterdam in 1954.

Huy

The city of Huy holds an important place in the history of cycling. Just a kilometre away from the town center, a small promontory is visited by thousands of spectators in the spring time who come to enjoy the most breathtaking battle between punchers of the season.
Finish of the Flèche Wallonne since 1984, the Chemin des Chapelles, also known as the Mur de Huy, hurts the legs and lungs of the greatest champions with hill gradients of close to 20 %: certainly the longest kilometre on the cycling planet.
