Tour de France 2020 Favourites stage 5: Strong sprinters on false flat finish

Peter Sagan 2019 - Tour de France 2020 Favourites stage 5: Power sprinters on false flat finishThe 5th stage on the Tour de France runs on an undulating route to a false flat finale.

So extra power will come in handy on the finishing straight in Privas. That, and a perfect timing, as the last few hundred metres runs false flat uphill.

Arguably, Peter Sagan is the man to beat. Last year, the multiple World Champion outgunned Wout Van Aert and Matteo Trentin at the end of a race through the Vosges Mountains. It turned out to be his only win on the 2019 Tour de France, while he won three stages in 2018.

A lot of fast finishers chose to participate in the Giro this year, which obviously increases the chances for the sprinters who do race the Tour de France.
