The Tour’s fourth visit to Nottinghamshire in seven years represents another chance for the sprinters.

Despite being the third longest stage of the race, the route between the Sherwood Forest visitor centre near Edwinstowe and Newark-on-Trent features a little over 1,200 metres of climbing.

The National Trust site of Clumber Park, Worksop, Retford, Southwell, Tuxford, and Collingham will feature along the route. The peloton will also pass the Tom Simpson Memorial in Harworth, which celebrates the life of the 1965 world road race champion.

The winner of the race’s second visit to Newark-on- Trent will be crowned close to the banks of the River Trent and just a short distance from the town’s famous castle and the spectacular St Mary Magdalene’s Church.

Movistar Team’s Fernando Gaviria triumphed here the last time the race finished in Newark-on-Trent six years ago.
