Stage 5 - Thursday July 8: Amiens - Chartres, 200.5km

By Deena-Maree Faulkner

With only one categorised climb, today's course isn't too hard. Starting in Amiens, this stage is almost the reverse of the Bonneval-Amiens stage, won by Mario Cipollini in 1999. The finishing straight in Chartres, measures about a kilometre in length. This is the first time Chartres has ever hosted the finish of a Tour de France stage.
