2019 Tour de France: Stage 5 preview

Stage 5: Saint-Die-Des-Vosges - Colmar
Date: July 10, 2019
Distance: 175.5km
Stage type: Hilly

This mountains-heavy Tour gets a little more serious with this beautifully balanced stage that, although unlikely to tempt the big hitters to centre stage, should produce plenty of action as it tickles the edge of the Vosges massif. This is the first day when breakaway specialists such as Thomas De Gendt may be tempted onto the attack, with the mountains jersey a potential prize even if their escape doesn't survive until the picturesque finish town of Colmar.
