Strong winds shorten Paris-Nice stage 6 – Live coverage


Today’s stage of Tirreno-Adriatico has also been shortened due to high winds. The finish at Sassotetto has been moved 2.5km further down the mountain. Read more here.

The alteration sees the removal of the category 3 Côte de la Roquebrussanne, the category 2 Côte des Tuilières and the category 3 Côte de Callian. The race will still include, however, the category 2 Côte de Cabris (5.3km at 5.8%) and the category 2 Côte de la Colle-sur-Loup (1.8km at 10%) in what is likely to be a very explosive finale.

Stage 6 of Paris-Nice was scheduled to get underway at 11.50 CET in Tourves, but gusts of up to 100kph on the early part of the course have forced a hasty rewriting of the route. At 11am, the race organisation announced that the 197km stage has been cut to just 80km in distance, with the start now set to take place at La Fontaine d’Aragon. The revised start time for the stage has yet to be formally announced, but the peloton was initially due to pass through the town at 14.34 CET per the quickest schedule, so we can assume the race won’t get underway before 14.00 at the earliest.
