The sprinters will have a second day to themselves on the fifth day of action. The route includes four intermediate climbs at shallow gradients in the first 111 kilometres before the race continues on the flat to a downhill with approximately 10 kilometres remaining. The last 3 kilometres run false flat uphill.
Last year’s Dauphiné served two sprint stages with Pascal Ackermann and Daryl Impey taking the spoils. Sam Bennett sprinted to a clear-cut victory in this edition’s 3rd stage.
