2011 Tour De France Route: Stage 5 Takes Riders Through Brittany

The 2011 Tour de France continues on Wednesday morning continues with another flat stage, once again through Brittany. The riders will start at Carhaix and make their way northeast to the coastline before making their way to Cap Fréhel. They will have traveled 164.5 km (102 mi) at the end of the stage.

Both Carhaix and Cap Fréhel are first-time stage races in the Tour de France, though they have been used in other tours. There will be a Category 4 climb 45.5 km into the stage, but that will be followed by the sprint portion at 67-70 km mark.

Thor Hushovd leads the overall race by one second over Cadel Evans at 13:58:25. His teammate David Millar is in fourth, eight seconds behind. Their team, Garmin-Cervelo leads the team time at 41:05:55. Will Hushovd be able to keep his jersey at the end of the stage or will another sprinter be able to emerge at the front of the pack?

VERSUS has live coverage beginning at 6 a.m. MT.
