Vuelta a España
Stage 5: Logroño – Logroño - Stage Details


It was quiet day for ORICA-GreenEDGE in Logroño after an exciting win yesterday. The spectator-friendly stage consisted of eight laps around the 21 kilometer circuit and came down a bunch sprint after a lone breakaway rider was caught in the penultimate lap. Lacking a lead out, Allan Davis sprinted to seventh on stage five. 

"When we seem out of the hunt the way we did today, I ask if we can do better – and the answer is usually yes. We discussed what we could have done differently in our debriefing. It seems like we relied on Simon too much after his hard day yesterday. He couldn’t be up there, and that impacted our finish. Other riders were caught out. The desire to support Allan was there, and we still have more chances to come to get things right." - Neil Stephens
