Paris-Nice 2022 stage 5Thursday 10 March - Paris-Nice continues further south on the fifth day of action to finish in the Ardéche region. The 188.8 kilometres route features six intermediate climbs, five of which are classified. The breakaway is likely to succeed.

Saint-Just-Saint-Rambert saw its last pro-peloton four years ago, when Daryl Impey sprinted to triumph in the opener of the Critérium du Dauphiné. This time, the riders leave the town in Loire department to traverse a route with an elevation gain of some 3,350 metres.

The first 15 kilometres run false flat uphill and after a short drop the Croix de Chauboureit presents the first ascent. It’s 9.8 kilometres long and averages 6.6%.

A long descent leads onto a phase in which the road is going either up or down with the Côte de Saint-Jeure-d’Ay (2.2 kilometres at 5.3%) standing out.

The riders drop down to a flat intermezzo before the second half of racing serves the Côte de Saint-Romain-de-Lerps (6.5 kilometres at 7.3%), Côte de Toulad (1.5 kilometres at 9.7%) and Col de la Mure (7,6 kilometer at 8.3%). At the summit of the last climb there are still 33 kilometres remaining.

After coming down from the Mure the road goes back up again to Saint-Vincent-de-Durfort. This a non-classified ascent of 4.8 kilometres at 5.4%. The second intermediate sprint takes place in the village before the riders continue to descend to a rolling run-in to the line.

The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprints – at kilometre 83.0 and at kilometre 176.7 – come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
