Another long stage is presented in stage 5, a transitional leg from Le Puy-en-Velay to Rasteau. Three Cat. 3 climbs are on the menu, along with the short but steep Cat. 2 Côte du Serre-de-Tourre. The small Côte de Buisson, whose summit lies just 13km from the finish, could provide the perfect springboard for a late stage attack.
