Nice > Sisteron
The departure of the 3rd stage will take place in the football Stadium, in Nice.
The exact itinerary is not known yet, but the race will go to Grasse, first, and then join Sisteron via the Napoleon Road. 198km of a "flat" stage, say the organizers. Actually, it is flatter in the end and this stage should be won by a sprinter if a breakaway does not succeed in keeping the pack at a distance.
Note that the Nice football team (OGC Nice) was just bought in 2019 by Ineos, the sponsor of the best cycling team which won the last Tours de France with Bernal, Wiggins, Thomas and Froome. And the stadium where the departure will take place is precisely the stadium where this team plays at home.
