Paris-Nice 2019 Route stage 5: ITT in Barbentane

Paris-Nice 2019 stage 5Thursday 14 March - The 5th stage in Paris-Nice is the first major test for the GC riders who are still in contention. At 25.5 kilometres, the riders face a an ITT with a 3 kilometres uphill halfway, while the race concludes with a short and sharp rise to the line.

The first part of the route is pan-flat, while the intermediate climb is 3 kilometres with an average gradient of 3%. The hill is crested near the Abbaye de Saint-Michel de Frigolet, which is also the location of the only time check after 14.5 kilometres.

Following the descent the riders hit a false flat, but as they come storming down the descent it will have no impact. The last 500 metres are something else, as this section rises to the finish line at 7%.

The ITT in last year’s Paris-Nice was won by Wout Poels.

Race leader Kwiatkowski is expected to finish at 16:30 – local time.
