The sun was back on Day 5 of the mHealth Grand Tour. This time riders cycled a total 185km from Mulhouse to Pontarlier, with a route following the border with Switzerland.
There was a challenging climb at the halfway point – the ground rises steeply from a starting elevation of 350m and climbs non-stop to 850m without any respite.
You can check some photos of Day 5 – right here on the left is Mary Shi, Young Leader in diabetes who came all to way from China to part in the tour to raise awareness of diabetes!
Today the riders will be taken along the Swiss border through the Jura mountains for Day 6 of the tour, which will end in Annecy, for a total of 172km and 1895m of climing!
