Stage 5 – 175.5 km (109 miles) – Hilly
The course in the Vosges area would allow visitors and TV viewers to enjoy the Haut- Koenigsbourg castle or admire the magnificent villages of Alsace. But the riders will be focused on their sensations as they take on the first real climbs of the Tour, like the Côte des Trois-Épis. A terrain mostly suited to strong breakaway experts.
