Paris-Nice Stage 5 Live Blog and Updates

Stage 5 of Paris-Nice take the riders from Châteauneuf-du-Pape to a summit finish atop La Montagne de Lure, a category 1 climb of 13.8 kilometres with a 6.6% average gradient that is sure to have a big bearing on who wins the 2013 edition of Paris-Nice.

Before the riders tackle La Montagne de Lure, they must travel 162 kilometres and ride up five other categorised climbs (two category 2 and three category 3 climbs).

This stage is where those harbouring hopes of a General Classification win must make their move, and with so many good riders showing early season form, the racing should be very exciting.

Currently wearing yellow is young American Andrew Talansky of Garmin-Sharp and he has already declared himself ready for the big climb, the question remains just how ready he is, and how will his rivals like Sylvain Chavanel, Teejay van Garderen and Peter Velits mount their challenge for the leaders jersey on this arduous stage.
