The first stage started in Dětmarovice with a 18.1 km (11.2 mi) travel south to Havirov. The riders swung east and encircled the lake to the south-east of the city. The course had during this section different small climbs, some steep but rising no more than 50m. At 45 km (28.0 mi) and 70 km (43.5 mi) started bigger climbs, but not that big as the mountains of stages 3 and 4. The last section after the last descent, about 20 km (12.4 mi) from the finish line, was a flatter section with hills no higher than 50m. The race ended on top of a steep climb.
The second stage was a 13 km (8.1 mi) individual time trial which took place in the morning starting from 9:30. The riders rode from Havirov to Ostava and back. The time trial would have been two rounds but was shortened to one. The course has some humps witch sections reaching a gradients near 6% and had a sweeping bend at the turning point.

This time the race began in the north of the town and heading north briefly before turning south-east towards the same lakes as in stage 1, then turns south at Stonava and south-west at Albrechtice. It passes the lakes Terlicko and Zermanice before progressing south via Dobra and Nosovice. The first 30 km (18.6 mi) had only a couple of small hills but from here the terrain begins to climb more steeply.
