Understanding our timetables

For each stage we list schedules based on three average speeds, which consider how the race could be contested as well as the impact of weather conditions.

Our base (predicted) speed – see column eight – for the 2021 race is 38kph; the full time schedule for this in regards to this stage is shown in column 10. A slightly slower and faster timetable are also provided to help spectators plan their visit to the race.

Mobile users may need to rotate their phone to landscape mode to view the full timetable. Alternatively, a PDF version of the timetable is available here.
