Satu Mare – Bistrița Town Hall, 205,2 km

Wednesday, 07.09.2022

Stage description:

A long stage where the ranking can already be outlined. Intermediate climbs and sprints, high chances to catch crosswinds as well. A big contrast to the effort in the prologue, now you need to stay strong for five hours. This day is too easy for a graded climber and too hard for a genuine sprinter. A route on which the escape has a high chance of reaching the finish, if it is made up of strong cyclists that are favourites even in the general classification.
