How to Watch the Tour
Day three in Corsica won’t crown the Tour champ, but it could dampen the hopes of any unlucky or inattentive favorites. The island roads are notoriously tight, narrow, winding, and devoid of shoulders so there will be lots of jockeying for position and the chance of easily missing out on moves. There’s nary a flat spot the entire day, so a breakaway could sneak away and make it all the way to the finish, which also means that if a group of favorites get up the road minus anyone considered to be a GC threat, it could be full-gas to the finish. But even if no drama ensues, the granite-pocked landscape and views out over the Mediterranean on the coastal route will ensure scenic viewing.
