Fabio Aru Astana claimed his first Tour de France stage win with an explosive performance on La Planche des Belles Filles on stage 5, with Chris Froome Team Sky returning to the scene of his first Tour stage win to take the yellow jersey of overall leader. Aru, who switched his focus to the Tour de France after a knee injury ruled him out of the Giro d'Italia, made a real statement of intent, springing clear of the group of general classification favourites just over two kilometres from the summit of the steep final climb to win alone. Dan Martin Quick-Step Floors accelerated away from the whittled down chasing group on the brutal final ramp to the line to take second place, 16 seconds in arrears, while Froome finished third, a further four seconds back. I attacked and gave it everything. I wanted to see who would move because Team Sky was setting a fast pace. I wanted to see what they had," said Aru, who took great pride in completing his Grand Tour set in the newly-acquired tricolore jersey of Italian champion.
The stage should begin with a breakaway filled with riders looking for a bit of TV time for their sponsors, as well as some seeking points in the King of the Mountains competition. KoM leader Tim Wellens is a good bet to go on the attack, trying to add to his lead in the hopes of wearing polka dots for at least another day. For a limited time you can get your hands on the Perso Evo 9, with its adjustable nose-piece and Zeiss lens, in this-team edition design. If a breakaway fails to emerge, expect a select group of overall contenders and perhaps a few of the more versatile sprinters to contest the finish. A good 10K of flat roads run between the bottom of the final descent and the finish line in Colmar, so we might see a bit of regrouping—especially if riders like Peter Sagan or Michael Matthews make it over the final climb in reach of whomever has escaped.

News and Updates for Tour de France 2019
There is a large car park outside the town on the main road which will be empty early in the morning assuming it is open but be warned that there is a steep uphill climb back to it after a long day in the saddle! The Centre Aquatique the town swimming pool looks like a suitable start point to me but it is on the wrong side of the river from the main road and so logistically they may consider that to be too tricky. The first 60km of the Etape is almost entirely downhill. I'd expect a lot of riders to go off very fast and for it to feel quite dangerous, especially for those not used to riding in large groups. With the adrenaline flowing there will be plenty of people absolutely going for it on this initial 60km and the key thing is to not get carried away and burn any matches early on with lots of hard riding to come later on in the day.
