Pont du Gard, watch the race live
We can enjoy a little sleep in this morning before we head off across the Rhône river into the Gard department for today’s stage. Soon after leaving from Nîmes, the peloton will cross the Roman aqueduct, Pont du Gard. We’ll avoid the closures on the aqueduct and catch up with the race later on before giving us a chance to see Pont du Gard and watching the race twice. Our longer ride will start from our hotel, while our short ride option will start further along our ride route.
You won’t miss the action of today’s race as our hospitality crew will secure a position on course and give you live television coverage as it unfolds. After the race has finished, we’ll travel back to our hotel where you can walk into the historic centre and have dinner. Today will be memorable for its scenery, historic sites and the buzz of chasing the Tour de France.
