In 2017, the 5th stage of Paris-Nice ends in Bourg-de-Péage. Chances are the race will boil down to a bunch sprint, albeit the route takes in quite a few hills. Yet most of them are featured in the first half of the race.

The hilly section basically runs until the Côte de Givors. KOM-point on this 4.3 kilometres climb at 4.2% are up for grabs at kilometre 98, but the climb rolls on for a few more kilometres. Following the drop the flat second half of the race stretches out before the riders. Still, there is one punchy hill left.
