Hello and welcome to our live coverage of stage 5 of the Critérium du Dauphiné.
Here's a look at the map for today's stage.
Today's stage kicks off in 20 minutes with a 20-minute ride through the neutral zone.
Yesterday's stage 4 time trial saw Mikkel Bjerg take the win and the race lead. Read all about what happened on the stage here.
Here's a look at the stage result, with Bjerg and Vingegaard the best of the lot.
And here's a look at the state of the general classification after the TT. Vingegaard in the driving seat having gained a lot of time on most of his GC rivals.
Today's stage brings with it a slim chance of some GC action. There's a 3.6km, 8.8% climb at 15km from the finish line. 173km to go until the riders hit that, though.
There's a long flat section to start the day. Just over 90km of flat roads before the hills begin.
Jonas Vingegaard put a minute plus into all of his GC rivals barring Adam Yates, Ben O'Connor and Dani Martínez on Wednesday. The likes of David Gaudu, Egan Bernal, Richard Carapaz, Enric Mas, and Mikel Landa all lost over two minutes to the Dane.
The riders are about to roll out to start the neutral zone.
The riders depart Cormoranche-sur-Saône.
The stage should be one for the breakaway today.
The neutral start was slightly delayed due to train traffic.
A look at the jersey wearers after stage 4...

Finally we're underway on stage 5.
137 riders start today. Geoffrey Bouchard and Ben Turner didn't finish yesterday's stage while Hugo Hofstetter was a DNS.
No DNS this morning.
Nils Politt (Bora-Hansgrohe) is among the early attackers today.
Thomas De Gendt (Lotto-Dstny) is also up there on the move.
Fines incoming for Richard Carapaz and EF Education-EasyPost. The Ecuadorian champion has seemingly forgotten to pin on his numbers today.
UCI regulations state that "identification number (body or frame) missing, not visible, modified, incorrectly positioned, or not recognisable" carries a 200CHF to 1,000CHF fine for the rider and a fine of 100CHF to 500CHF for the team's directeur sportif.
