Race Start

Stage 7 of Paris-Nice is underway! Riders are off from the start line in nice on a damp and grey day in Nice.

Here’s Brandon McNulty back in the yellow jersey after his strong performance on stage 6. He leads the overall race 23 seconds ahead of compatriot Matteo Jorgenson after the American pair lit up the finale of yesterday’s stage.

A reminder that today’s route has been modified due to adverse weather in the Alpes-Maritimes department, with snow and ice rendering the climbs supposed to feature today unsafe.

Instead of the Auron finish, stage 7 will now run 104km and finish up the Madone d’Utelle (15.1 km at 5.7%) climb after a relatively easy build-up to the climb.

We’re just under 10 minutes away from the neutralised roll-out, with the race finally reaching Nice after six days of racing.
