Stage 1

Sunday June 05 2022 - La Voulte-sur-Rhône to Beauchastel - 191.8 km Hilly

Stage 1 features a hilly finishing circuit. The race is billed as more open for the sprinters this year but only just, this is a course where Sam Bennett, Caleb Ewan or Peter Sagan could strike but it won’t tempt others. Stay for the scenery though as the race passes the Loire valley and climbs clifftops before the finish in the pretty town of Beauchastel, although presumably the race can’t visit the medieval old town and has to finish somewhere more practical.
