March 13 update: The stage 5 route has been changed due to road damage on one of the climbs. Therefore, the stage will be 18 km shorter and the three moderate climbs have been replaced by one tough climb -- see the updated profile and map links above. (The interactive map has not been updated). The finish with the 750m 15% wall (max 20%) just 1 km from the line, is still intact.
A detailed look at the last 5 km:
