If no echelons occur, then the peloton should arrive as a pack at the bottom of The Glacerie hill – the first identified challenge of this Tour de France 2016. The first points for the red polka-dot jersey will be granted at the top of the hill to the winner of this Stage 2. Three uphill kilometres will lead to the crowning of an energetic racer who will have made an escape at the right time during this struggle.
The Stage 2 arrival of the 2016 Tour de France will take place at the Cherbourg-en-Cotentin suburb called la Glacerie, after a short yet steep hill climb briefly reaching 14 % at one point.Discover the town
