Stage 5 of the Tour de France is from Arras Communauté Urbaine to Amiens Métropole covering 189.5 kilometres. A bunch sprint finish is expected in Amiens although the race could again be affected by crosswinds.
If it comes down to a sprint, Mark Cavendish (Etixx-Quick Step) will be aiming to make amends for Stage 2, where Green jersey wearer André Greipel took the win. Others who may be in contention include John Degenkolb (Giant-Alpecin), Peter Sagan (Tinkoff-Saxo) and Alexander Kristoff (Katusha).
Tony Martin (Etixx-Quick Step) goes into the stage weawing the yellow jersey, and will be hopeful of retaining it for another few days.
The German leads Chris Froome by 12 seconds, but the 2013 winner will not be looking to take over the yellow jersey at the moment. Tejay van Garderen lies in third place, 25 second behind Martin.
