Monday, April 21, stage 1 — The race will make its first ever visit to the seacoast when it starts at Tybee Island. The 71.8-mile stage passes through the coastal lowcountry, with several intermediate sprints before the finish in Savannah. The race has not visited the historic city since it hosted the prologue in 2003.

Tuesday, April 22, stage 2 — This 115.7 mile stage is another one for the sprinters, with two intermediate sprints and a mostly flat route before a circuit finish in downtown Augusta, which is on the Georgia/South Carolina state line. The route includes the race’s first categorized climb, in North Augusta, where King of the Mountain points will be awarded.

Wednesday, April 23, stage 3 — A 109.7-mile romp across rolling terrain, this stage travels from Washington to Gainesville, with one rated climb and three intermediate sprints before the downtown circuit finish. Gainesville hosted a stage finish in 2003 and a stage start in 2005.
