In the fifth stage of the Vuelta a España, it was expected that he would air from the side, but in the end it did not happen in order to cut the peloton. Although the tension in case the wind appeared caused a lot, which left Taaramäe without the red jersey. The winner, Jasper Philipsen, was a favorite. His team, Alpecin, and Deceuninck took responsibility in the last kilometers to break the break and then took advantage of it to get their second victory. In the case of the Spanish, facing the sprint, the only one who is getting into it is Aberasturi, who finished sixth. As for the rest, we do not have runners who may be struggling in these types of stages, with massive arrivals. For Enric Mas or Landa the most important thing is not to waste time on days like this.

Elissonde was positioned as the leader, an award that comes late, as a result of the fall of Taaramäe and because he was on the breakaway at Picón Blanco and had a good stage. But from the general point of view, it is insignificant. However, it is good for Roglic not to have the red jersey these days because that way it does not wear out his teammates much, whether Taaramäe or Elissonde wears it he does not care. The arrival of the next day in Cullera is unprecedented. The most significant thing will be the entry they have two km from the finish line, since everyone will want to be in front and it will be important to start the slope in a good position.
