“… The following day (Thursday), the riders will compete over a flatter 150.2 kilometre race from Glengarriff to Michelstown. Inside the first hour of racing on stage five they will scale the category two ascents of the Pass of Keimaneigh and Gortnabinna, then encounter 100 kilometres of mainly flat roads, passing through Macroom, Millstreet, Banteer and Mallow.
Those hoping to foil the sprinters will try to use the category three climb of Kildorrey to jump clear, but with fifteen kilometres between the summit and the finish, it’s a tough ask.” – from anpost.ie
