    And the start order and times as well as a video of the race route of the individual time trial at the end of the article.

    The third stage of Paris-Nice 2017 could have seen the breakaway decide for the stage victory but in the it was caught back only in the last kilometer and the two survivors of the initial leading trio thus realised that the stage victory would be decided in a bunch sprint once again and this time it was Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe)'s turn to win it!

    The summary of the 3rd stage of Paris-Nice 2017: Chablis > Chalon-sur-Saône

    Summary 1st stage Paris-Nice 2017: victory for Arnaud Démare, Romain Bardet excluded!Difficult weather conditions marked the first stage of Paris-Nice 2017 and were the reason why the peloton got reduced rather quickly after the start of the stage. Despite the presence of several sprinters in the group which survived these weather conditions, the victory was finally decided in a duo sprint, thanks to a surprise attack by Julian Alaphilippe (Quick-Step Floors) in the short climb leading to the finish. Followed only by Arnaud Démare (FDJ), the last mentioned rider managed to win the stage and thus take the first yellow jersey.
