Gree-Tour of Guangxi
Stage 5: Liuzhou to Guilin - Stage Details

In form Grand Tour stage winner Magnus Cort sprinted to his second third place of the race for ORICA-SCOTT on stage five of the Tour of Guangxi, after making the split into the front group on a long rolling stage.

The longest stage of the race at 212,2kilometres and covering four categorised climbs started with a bang as attack after attack marked the opening 60kilometres before a breakaway trio made it up the road.

After enjoying a lead of over five minutes the trio were finally caught when the main peloton split into the closing 25kilometres before a front group of 70riders sped into the finale in the city of Guilin.

Dylan Groenewegen (LottoNL-Jumbo) took out the stage victory, winning the sprint ahead of Fernando Gaviria (QuickStep-Floors) and Cort.

“It was a quite a long stage today, but really enjoyable racing,” said sport director Matt Wilson. “There was a couple of little climbs with around 30/40kilometres to go and they really spiced the race up.”
