Stage 5 - June 13: Stillwater criterium, 70/50 minutes

The final stage is another criterium, however this one is not flat. Within the 1.2 mile (1.9km) lap, riders must contend with Chilkoot Hill, which has an average grade of 18%. After cresting the hill, the course continues on a slight uphill drag before turning back around for the fast descent to the finish. Men race for 70 minutes and women race for 50 minutes.
