Tour de France 2011: Live Coverage Of Stage 3 Begins At 8 A.M.

The 2011 Tour de France gets back at it bright and early on Monday morning as the third stage of the race gets underway. Unlike the second stage, which was a time trial, Monday will be about length with the stage reaching 198 kms.

The cyclists will be heading out of the Vendée and into Brittany, beginning at Olonne-Sur-Met, crossing the Loire via the Saint-Nazaire bridge, which is the high point of this stage. It's not extremely high and will be ideal for sprinters. There won't be many better opportunities for them to make a move. The stage ends in Redon, a town with a rich cycling heritage.

 

A replay of the stage will be shown on Versus at 12 p.m., 2:30 p.m., 8 p.m. and 12 a.m. Versus will also be broadcasting Tour de France related shows throughout the day, including a pre-race show at 7 a.m.
