Tour de France Revisited: 2016 – Stage4 Saumur to Limoges

The route was suited to sprinters but held a twist at the end, with an unclassified climb

This suited the bigger riders and there was remarkable sprint finish – even closer than Stage 3, ‘A cat’s whisker’ said the delighted winner, Marcel Kittel. Fantastic!
