Day 5: From Mulhouse to Pontarlier

_E5A4638The 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.
