Tour de France 2022 Route stage 5: Lille - Arenberg

Tour de France 2022Wednesday 6 July - The Tour de France presents its take on Paris-Roubaix on the 5th stage. At 155 kilometres, the route travels from Lille to Arenberg and takes in the cobbles that have been immortalised by the Hell of the North. To be precise, 20 kilometres of the route will be on pavé.

Lille hosted the Tour de France on dozens of occassions, although it has been awhile since the last ones. In 2014, Marcel Kittel sprinted to victory, while penultimate visit occurred in 1994, and the finish before that was as far back as 1982.

Tthe 5th stage of the 2022 Tour de France travels to Arenberg. The village is made famous by the Trouée d’Arenberg from Paris-Roubaix, but also hosted two Tour de France finishes. In 2010, Thor Hushovd a race with seven cobbled sectors, and in 2014 Lars Boom succeeded the Norwegian. That last stage was played in rainy conditions and saw defending champion Chris Froome crash out of contention, while eventual GC winner Vincenzo Nibali extend his lead with a solid third place.

The Tour last visited the pavé in 2018, when John Degenkolb won the stage, and in 2015, when Tony Martin took both the day honours and the yellow jersey.
