Tour de France 2014, Stage 3: Route, TV schedule and more

Doug Pensinger

The English stages of the Tour de France will wrap up on Monday with Stage 3.

It's shaped up to be a sprinter's day on Monday in the Tour de France with the a relatively short and relatively flat stage on tap. The 155-kilometer Stage 3 will begin in Cambridge and finish in London. It will be the third and final stage held in England before the Tour moves to France.

Coming off a stage with a few significant climbs, Stage 3 will be a major change with no categorized climbs on the course. That will likely lead to a very fast race with the sprinters holding the upper hand. There will be a few interesting areas and some tight riding near the finish. Marcel Kittel, who won Stage 1, is among the favorites to win Stage 3. If the stage does end up as a sprint, there are several other riders who could challenge Kittel and the field. Andre Greipel and Peter Sagan could be among the contenders.

Vincenzo Nibali will begin the race with the yellow jersey after winning Stage 2 on Sunday. He didn't fare as well in Stage 1, which was dominated by the sprinters. He finished 34th in that stage and a similar finish could lead to someone else taking the yellow jersey. Sagan is a strong candidate as he's just off the lead and should be strong contender in a fast Stage 3.

NBC Sports Network will provide live television coverage of the stage, with the broadcast scheduled to run from 8-11:30 a.m. ET. The network will replay it's coverage from 8-11 p.m.
