In a press release published this Friday morning, Cyclistes Professionnels Associés (CPA) announced that the 3-kilometer rule would be changed during the 13th stage of the Tour de France disputed between Nîmes and Carcassonne, the arrival in the town of Aude being quite technical. “After consultation between the organization of the Tour de France and the CPA, we asked the UCI to adapt the 3 km rule for difficult arrivals. We are happy to announce that we have obtained a derogation in the form of test for today’s arrival (Friday) in Carcassonne. The 3 km rule will therefore apply 4.5 km from the finish. Thanks to the UCI and ASO for listening to the riders’ recommendations! “, is it thus indicated by the CPA. This decision comes eleven days after the tumultuous 3rd stage between Lorient and Pontivy, during which many falls had taken place, and in particular in the final.
