At 167.3 kilometres, the route of stage 5 in the BinckBank Tour takes in two different laps to the south of Sittard/Geleen.

The riders are to crest 19 hills before arriving at the finish line, while a cobbled stretch of 200 metres at 10% marks the finale.
Sittard/Geleen was a regular host of the Eneco Tour and continues to do so in the BinckBank Tour. Last year, BMC took the TTT in the place in the south of the Netherlands, while Johan Le Bon outsprinted Dylan van Baarle two years ago after being in the break together. In 2014, Guillaume Van Keirsbulck soloed to victory in Sittard/Geleen.

In order of appearance, Bergstraße (700 metres at 4%), Schatsberg (800 metres at 5%), Weg langs Stammen (350 metres at 8%), Windraak (700 metres at 4.5%) and Watersley (400 metres at 4%). In the last round these hills are crested with 31.3 kilometres, 16.6 kilometres, 12.3 kilometres, 7.8 kilometres and 6.4 kilometres remaining. With around 1 kilometre left the riders face a cobbled sectorof 200 metres with a 10% slope.
