STAGE 3 DATE
Sunday 11th August 2019
THE OFFICIAL START
Start Time: 10h30
Finish Time: 13h45
What can we expect?
The final stage of the race takes us deep into the Scottish borders with the terrain throwing up both beauty and brutality.
With Fringe Festival goers and activities a plenty in Edinburgh from early doors, there should be a great atmosphere as the peloton leaves the capital. Fans will be able to catch a sight of the group as they leave the capital and head towards Glentress, where the feed zone again offers fans an opportunity to see the riders up close.
With several uncategorised climbs and wide-open roads threatening possible echelons and strong winds, this will be a stage where vigilance and energy saving will be paramount. The long dragging climb of The Mound which then comes with around 50km to the finish, looks sure to offer the main obstacle to any lead developed by the woman wearing yellow.
The overall leader is likely to have attacks from her challengers before the race plummets it way towards the gruelling three strong lap finishing circuit of Holyrood Park, where the riders can hope to expect a carnival atmosphere.
