Tour de France Revisited: 2016 – Stage4 Saumur to Limoges

Another look back to the Tour de France, this time to 2016 and Stage 4, a long route, ‘through luscious countryside and warm sunshine’ as I wrote at the time.

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!

Tour de France 2016: Stage 4 – Saumur to Limoges

Bonjour! Stage 4 continued the theme of Stage 3, this was really the longest route of the Tour through luscious countryside and warm sunshine. The route was suited to the sprinters but held a twist at the end, with an unclassified climb. This suited the bigger riders and again we saw another remarkable sprint finish – even closer than yesterday, ‘A cat’s whisker’ said the delighted winner, Marcel Kittel. Fantastic!  Here are my drawings:
