Tour's Stage 5 Is Another Day For Sprinters

Posted on the 04 July 2013 by Jobsanger
Tour's Stage 5 Is Another Day For Sprinters Stage 5 of the 100th Tour de France turned out to be another day for the sprinters, as the peloton finished in a group. There were some medium grade climbs in the stage (category 3 and 4), but none of the really difficult climbs (category 2, 1, or unrated) that would break up the peloton and show us who the real contenders are this year. As a result, there are still 50 riders less than a minute off the lead, and at least 37 riders less than 30 seconds out of the overall lead (a time difference that could easily disappear in the higher mountains). Here are the top finishers for stage 5, and the overall standings after that stage:
