Tour de France 2024: the profile of the 5th stage Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne - Saint-Vulbas

New opportunity for sprinters this Wednesday July 3 between Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne and Saint-Vulbas.

After a very difficult stage this Tuesday in the Alps, return from the plain for the Tour de France riders between Saint-Jean-de -Maurienne and Saint-Vulbas this Wednesday July 3. The stage, 177 kilometers long, will be flat with two small 4th category passes which should not disturb the sprinters who will go for the win.< /p>

Firstly, the riders will climb the Côte du Cheval Blanc, a 4th category climb 1.5km long & 4.3%. À 35 kilometers from the finish, there will be the coast of Lhuis and its 3 kilometers away. 4.8% average which could possibly be a small springboard for adventurers who don't want to finish in a sprint. But "the wide roads" as Christian Prudhomme, boss of the Tour de France, explains, should smile at the peloton facing the challenge. escape.
