The start of the third stage is in Slovenske Konjice. The route itself is very dynamic at the beginning of the stage, with an intermediate sprint in Šentjur, which has long been known for its hospitality to cycling competitors. At this stage, it will be possible to start speculating about who might be the winner of the 25th Tour of Slovenia. The ascent to Celjska koča (where time trials were also held a few years ago) will be physically very challenging, as expected, while the descent will require considerable technical knowledge. The riders will then have to climb to Celjski grad.
