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.[4]

Due to the fall of the main bunch in the last three kilometer zone riders on place 1–101 were credited with the same time. The fall happened before beginning of the final climb.
