Paris-Nice 2017 Route stage 5: Quincié en Beaujolais – Bourg de Péage
Thursday, 9 March 2017 - In the 5th stage of Paris-Nice the riders travel from Quincié-en-Beaujolais to Bourg de Péage. At 199.5 kilometres, it is the longest stage in the 2017 edition of Paris-Nice.
Bourg-de-Péage and pro-cycling, that has become a popular combination in recent years. Two years ago stage 16 in the Tour de France left from the town in the Rhône-valley. The race boiled down to a Ruben Plaza showdown in arrival town Gap after a massive solo effort.
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. The Côte de Saint-Uze is 2.7 kilometres at 6.5% and at the top there are 47 kilometres left to race.
The first three riders on the line in Bourg-de-Péage take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while intermediate sprints (after 70 and 133.5 kilometres) come with 3, 2 and 1 second each.
