Stage three of the 2020 Tour de France is one for the sprinters.
A lumpy start to the lengthy 198km stage eases off in its second half as the race moves away from Nice and the Mediterranean for the first time.
Any breakaway is likely to be caught baring unusual circumstances, and the sprinters will get a chance to duke it out before the surprisingly early summit finish in stage 4.
Nacer Bouhanni won on a similar stage in the Dauphine in 2015, while the 2018 Paris-Nice also saw a similar stage profile, with the breakaway just staying away by a matter of seconds as the sprinters hunted them down with the line in sight.
