Tour of California 2019 stage 5Thursday 16 May - At 219.5 kilometres, the 5th stage on the Tour of California travels from Pismo Beach to Ventura. The lumpy route features five classified climbs.

The five KOMs add up to an elevation gain of 2,950 metres with the San Marcos Pass peaking out. The 6.1 kilometres climb at 6.8 is crested around the halfway mark before the route continues to the Casitas Pass. The riders tackle the ascent in short succession from two different sides, while the pass is history with 35 kilometres remaing.

The finale is pepped up with a 900 metres climb at 9% before the technical finish features a lot of twisting and turning.

The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while two intermediate sprints – at kilometre 40 and 214 – come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.

The 5th stage of the Tour of California starts at 10:05 and the race is expected to finish at 15:42 – both are local times.
