Turin opening sprint test for modified UCI 3km rule at Tour de France

Tour de France organisers ASO confirmed that six stages will implement extended distances on finishes for the UCI’s ‘three-kilometre rule’ this year, beginning with two additional kilometres added to the flat run-in on Monday’s stage 3 in Turin, Italy, the first showdown for sprinters across three weeks.

A modification to the ‘sprint zone’ rule, UCI article 2.6.027, commonly called the ‘3km rule’, was formally introduced at the UCI Management Committee meeting in Aigle, Switzerland, in early June to address rider safety at road races.
