Fantasy Fives: Vuelta a Espana Stage 5 RESULTS

Breakaway days are not always the best days in Fantasy Fives, many of the teams challenging for the overall struggling to place one of their GC riders in the lucrative move. As a result, the top ten has seen a lot of chop and changing…

@EmilyMaiden’s team proved to be the strongest today, thanks to an impressive ride from her Spanish duo of Contador and Soler!

Lots of high scores on today’s stage, not many teams possessing some of the obscure names in today’s breakaway move. Two riders who profited from the move with Adios Alberto and Vive le Velo, two teams using the young Spaniard Marc Soler. Adios Alberto scored just enough to take the stage win, an impressive result on such a hard day of racing!

Beefeater Bend remain on the top step of the podium but as each day goes by, they slowly lose ground on some competitors behind, namely CyclingHill who have had a brilliant past few days of racing to haul themselves into second place.

Beefeater Bend also resume control of the stage classification, Trentin bringing them the majority of their 16 points.

For the combative classification, today was a very lucrative day, especially for The Cycling Delegate who managed to place two of their riders in the day’s move. Such a points tally sees them move into the combative leadership; @InsidePeloton96 and @Cycling_Crazy aren’t going to be happy…

The KOM classification remains the same, no riders possessing David Vilella for today’s stage! CruijffAFCA remain the leaders in this competition; but with many more KOM points on tomorrow’s stage, can they hold onto the coveted polka dots?

Let’s have a quick look at the leaderboard after stage five…
