Stage 5: Vaduz - Giubiasco
Stage five brings the peloton back across the Swiss border. After an intermediate sprint at kilometre 33.5, the riders will hit the summit of the category three ascent at Hotel des Alpes [58.5 km], then continue on to the top of the first category Lukmanierpass, 78.3 clicks from the stage end. A fast descent speeds the field towards a couple of intermediate sprints plus the final climb of the day, the fourth category hill between Gorduno and Galbisio [17.3 km from the line]. Despite the earlier first cat mountain, a bunch gallop seems the most likely outcome here.
