Vuelta a España: Stage 5 preview

Stage 5: Logroño to Logroño, 168.0km

This stage is a circuit around the capital of the Rioja region so it’s all fairly straightforward, which will come to a relief to many of the riders who have been on the rivet throughout the last two days. There will be no surprises at the finishing line, as they will have already been through it seven times before the final lap. The peloton will most likely leave it to the sprinters ahead of another climbing day tomorrow. After several roundabouts and bends in the final 5km, the boys will have a straight, wide avenue to race to the finish, with the flamme rouge coming after the start of the straight.
