The fifth stage carries the title of “the royal stage” of this year's race since in its 155 kilometers holds 3,300 meters of altitude difference and additional climbing from the seafront promenade in Rabac to the center of old town Labin where the official start will be placed. The cyclists will pass through Rijeka via Korzo and continue towards Opatija, fighting for positions before the final uphill of 15 km and 922 meters in height difference from Ičići to Poklon. Last year we witnessed the final sprint of Vincenza Nibali and Jamie Ronson, David defeated Goliath, will it happen again, remains to be seen.
