Hello and welcome again to Austria, where stage number 5 awaits us today! The high mountains are over, but we're still in hilly terrain. It's the big highlight for the puncheurs today - and probably the final occasion to gain some time on the strong time trialists, before they'll strike back on the final day!

But let's first talk about today. And today's stage starts where yesterday's ended - in St. Johann im Pongau. Not in the Alpendorf, but down in the town, so we can start going uphill right away! The first climb leads up to Eben im Pongau - a pretty ironic name, as Eben also means "flat" - where we'll not have a KoM sprint, though, but a normal sprint. The line will be crossed after 12.7km - an ideal terrain for breakaways to form, that's for sure!

After this warm-up climb follows the easiest part of this longest stage of the race, with mostly slightly descending roads until the third intermediate sprint in Hall bei Admont, after 110 kilometers. The second sprint is on this stretch, too, only 20km after the first one, in Mandling.

Now, the three intermediate sprints are over - but on the final 100km, three KoM sprints await the riders. First is the ascent to the Buchauer Sattel, today's sole 3rd category climb, with the hilltop after 122 kilometers. An uncategorized climb to Erb follows, before we get a 4th category KoM sprint to Radstatthöhle, after 150km.

After the final categorized climb of the day (no, there are no KoM points at the finish line) to Lassing, about 45 kilometers will be left. With most of them leading downhill - although just slightly once the actual descent done - we can expect a very fast finale - and hopefully some well recovered riders ready to tackle the final uphill!

And this one will start in Böhlerwerk, and lead the riders up to Sonntagberg - Sunday Mountain, literally translated. The most important monument is the Basilica, visible from far away due to its location on top of the hill, and an important pilgrimage center. But maybe today's warriors will be more interested in the military museum?

Whatever they like to do in their spare time, first they'll have to fight - and we do expect a fight of the best puncheurs for today's stage win! But the final hill is actually pretty long - and so we had the best climber winning this stage instead last year. Yeah, we're speaking of current GC leader pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin. We don't have a top puncheur participating, so obviously the climbers are seen as today's top favorites by the bookies - however, the climbers with at least some decent punch. Home rider pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler tops their list, ahead of the current GC Top 2, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya may have their chances as well, just like pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran.

Let's see how that one turns out! There's enough of a flat section ahead of the final climb to reel in the breakaway in time - but will any team be willing to do so? Let's find out!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_01.jpg

This image is pretty symbolic, as we're really leaving the big mountains behind now. And we can also see pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler in the first row, alongside all the special jersey wearers - it seems as if he's striving for redemption today!

Although the weather is beautiful once again, it still isn't optimal, as the riders are going to face headwinds of almost 30km/h during most of today's stage! And on the flat-ish section leading to the final ascent, we'll have crosswinds - hopefully everyone will be on their guards!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_02.jpg

But now, let's get the stage started - and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez makes it clear right from the line that he doesn't want to give away his jersey! With 16 points at stake today, there are still 7 riders who could at least tie his 34 points - pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson, the first attacker, is none of them, though.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_03.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Hughes is next to leave behind the pack on this initial hill up to Eben. No danger in terms of KoM, either.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_04.jpg

The Canadian soon catches up with the two leading Spaniards, making it just a trio up front. However, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Walls and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Gall are setting a high pace back in the peloton, meaning pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png GCN are rather unhappy with the group - probably mainly because pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez currently is 3rd in the KoM standings and hasn't made the jump up front.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_05.jpg

However, the bunch eventually slows down, and by the time we pass the first intermediate sprint, the gap is over three minutes. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Hughes takes full points here.

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Hughes - 6 (10)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson - 4 (22)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez - 2 (10)

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson moves up to 9th with these points - any of the escapees could actually take over the points jersey with the remaining intermediate sprints and the stage win!

And when we're talking about stage win, let's take a look at who would be the favorite. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson should be named on top, as he's the best puncheur, the strongest climber and has the strongest acceleration of the group. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Hughes are both decent on the hills as well, though, with the latter having the best resistance, and the former the best stamina - which might come into play on such a long stage!

But first, they'll have to make it - against two enemies: the pack and the headwind...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_06.jpg

When speaking of the pack, here they are, 3'16" later. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Goldstein is leading them, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Drucker, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Ostergaard, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Vaquera, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Garcia Cortina, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Ahmad Zamri, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Maksimov, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Schomber, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Geniez and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Golovash taking turns as well - it's 10 vs 3, not a very fair game...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_07.jpg

Second intermediate sprint, still nobody particularly interested in the points - not even pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson, who could have moved quite far up had he won all of those three sprints... Instead, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez leads them over the line.

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez - 6 (16)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Hughes - 4 (14)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson - 2 (24)

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson still gains another spot, overtaking pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens. He's 8th in the virtual points standings now.

The peloton trails by 4'34" in Mandling.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_08.jpg

Except for a puncture by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/t3a.png Dekker (he made it back easily), not much happens on the next 75 kilometers. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez wins the final intermediate sprint of the day in Hall bei Admont, before the interesting part of the stage - the last 100 kilometers - starts.

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez - 6 (22)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Hughes - 4 (18)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson - 2 (26)

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson now matches pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl's score for 4th place, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez has entered the Top 10 of the virtual points standings as well.

The peloton's deficit maxed around 5 minutes and is now down to 3'22" as they cross this line. As the first KoM sprint will take place in less than 5 kilometers, it's less and less likely that someone will still be able to steal the jersey from pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_09.jpg

7% average slopes on just 3 kilometers isn't that hard, so it's almost impossible - barring a mechanical problem - that the pack catches the escapees before the top of this hill.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_10.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez has really brought himself into a great position by getting into this breakaway, as none of his companions can overtake him - and the group will still take all the points, leaving none for the peloton. Let's see if he still goes for the win on top.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_11.jpg

Of course he does, and he does indeed win! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson just follows his wheel, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Hughes doesn't care at all and has a 20" gap to close on the descent.

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez - 6 (40)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson - 4 (15)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Hughes - 2 (2)

With just a maximum of 10 points on offer at the remaining KoM sprints, only pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Scheit could still overtake pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez now - but they'd first need to catch the breakaway! But the gap hasn't decreased on this climb, on the contrary. It's up to 3'30" again. 93km to go!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_12.jpg

With less than 2 kilometers in length and just over 5% of average slopes, the ascent to Radstatthöhle won't be a real challenge for the leaders, either. They start the climb with a 3 minutes advantage - the KoM jersey will be definitely secured for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez in a few minutes!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_13.jpg

And he does so in style, by winning another KoM sprint! Admittedly, his two companions both didn't care this time, but it's still a strong showing for the second day in a row!

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez - 5 (45)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson - 3 (18)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Hughes - 1 (3)

Barring any disaster, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez has definitely won the KoM jersey now! Congratulations!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_14.jpg

While the have been losing time on most of the climb, the peloton has finally woken up on the final meters, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Tatarinov now seriously chasing! Their deficit is slightly below 3 minutes, and we still have more than 60 kilometers to cover!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_15.jpg

But on this headwind section leading to the final categorized hill of the race, they have lost about half their advantage, with the pack now moving clearly faster! They're even so fast that they might make the catch before the KoM sprint!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_16.jpg

This is what awaits them in a few kilometers. It's another one of those short and not very steep hills - but the middle part still may hurt a bit after more than 150 kilometers already done!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_17.jpg

In the peloton, some riders were actually chasing so hard that a group of 10 breaks free - including pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez, who may at least want to get the 2nd place in the KoM standings!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_18.jpg

And indeed, we see a pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png GCN jersey on the attack - but it isn't pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez! Instead, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Williams probably sees a chance of getting the stage win today!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_19.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez is completely unimpressed by what happens behind him, as he makes it 3/3 today, winning the final KoM sprint of the race. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Williams' attack came too late to score some points - he crosses the line 20" behind the head of the race.

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez - 5 (50)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Hughes - 3 (6)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson - 1 (19)

While pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez' win was clear already before, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rpn.png Roson now matches pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens' score for 6th place in the final KoM standings.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_20.jpg

After pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Williams's attack, the remaining 9 riders were caught by the peloton, and almost all riders make it over this hill inside the pack, 1'32" behind the leaders. Just pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Verona and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Robert have been distanced by more than 3 minutes already and will have to do the rest of the stage on their own.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_21.jpg

Soon after having caught up with the leading trio, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Williams tries to leave them behind - as the pack has already gotten as close as one minute!

However, neither his nor pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Fernandez' attacks were successful.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_22.jpg

And under the 20km banner, the catch is almost made. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Zabel and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Ostergaard are closing the final meters of the gap, meaning that the fight for the stage win will at the same time be the fight for the GC!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_23.jpg

We're now on that crosswind section leading to the final ascent, and some more riders are losing contact. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Vinhas is probably the most interesting name back here besides pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Havik and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Ciolek, but definitely none of the top contenders.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_24.jpg

However, with 10 kilometers to go, we see a few riders who are really in danger of losing their good GC position, as they're close to the back - and should really move up fast if they want to tackle the final ascent in a good position!

Especially pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Abal, who is in 2nd last position of the pack, should really hurry up now, but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Faiers, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Diaz, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Potocki and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Min definitely aren't in a great position, either!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_25.jpg

Just 5 kilometers remaining on today's stage - and less than one kilometer to the start of the ascent to Sonntagberg! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Velasco and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Thill are setting a really fast pace, making it almost impossible for those named before to move up!

We can see race leader pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin and strong puncheur pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Moazemi in the first positions behind the pacemakers, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Intxausti, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz in the next two rows. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya are slightly further down, along with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Konig or pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy's situation is looking even worse, though!

And all of those riders listed at the 10km mark are still way further down the road - they really have to hope for no splits to occur!

Stage 5 / 7: Hilly, 209.2km

St. Johann - Sonntagberg

Part 2 / 2



pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_26.jpg

And here's the profile of that final ascent! Just ignore the first kilometer - the climb really starts after a right turn, and from there we'll have slightly more than 3km left, with above 7% of average gradients! Let's see who's the strongest today!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_27.jpg

Up we go! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Tatarinov leads the pack on the first slopes, ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Habtemichael, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Geniez, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Stannard, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Thill and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Zabel - not all of them are really puncheurs...

Among the stage favorites, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin is best positioned, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya taking whis wheel. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin are slightly further behind, just like pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Moazemi, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Konig, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour...

But pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens is actually even further down and might have a hard time moving up front with so many riders in his way now!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_28.jpg

2.5 uphill kilometers to go, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Tatarinov is still pulling up front. But it's now getting clear that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya really have a great position, being in the first row of the actual peloton!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Moazemi and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer are well positioned, too, followed by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Intxausti, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Konig and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy at least still has pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Figueiredo with him, but is already quite far back, just like pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens - although not as far as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour and especially pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl, who has lost a lot of positions in no time! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz is holding the Austrian's wheel, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya nearby, too.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa however is the big loser of the last few hundreds of meters, having dropped back to the likes of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Pantano Gomez, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Min or pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/nca.png Faiers!

And pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Abal? Last time we saw him, he was second-last of the pack - well, he still is...

Two kilometers to go! At least, the gravel roads are done for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Tatarinov, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Habtemichael, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Geniez, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Stannard, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Thill and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Borisavljevic! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya has now moved up, about level with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Laas, who has a small gap to his leader pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Konig and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Intxausti are the next big names on the road, followed by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy. All others will surely struggle to get a notable result today!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_30.jpg

1,500m to the line, and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Habtemichael has now taken over from a tiring pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Tatarinov! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Geniez, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Stannard and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Laas follow in this line, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya already seems to be launching a very long-range sprint - with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png De la Cruz and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Moazemi glued to his wheel!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin still hasn't closed the gap to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Laas, but has now passed pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Borisavljevic and is about to do the same with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Thill. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Schleck is still going strong, just like pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Squire, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Robov and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov, before we have pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Favilli leading out pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo is next, followed by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin who has taken pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Bostner's wheel. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Konig and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler both are in contention for once, alongside pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran, who is followed by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens is still further down, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour close by as well.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl is still trying to move up, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz has lost his wheel - and has even dropped behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_31.jpg

Under the red kite, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Moazemi has taken the lead, inches ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Habtemichael and half a bike length ahead pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya, who seems to be tiring already!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin has now caught up with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Laas, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png De la Cruz looks tired as well after his strong leadout! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Tatarinov and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Geniez are still up front as well - four pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Kraftwerk riders in the first 8 positions, that's a job well done so far!

It's also four pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Xero riders in the Top 10, though, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Schleck and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Stannard are still going strong, too! We then have pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Borisavljevic and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Bostner - and finally the next stage favorites with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Robov and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Squire are strong puncheurs as well, and are absolutely in contention for a big result as well - however, the former might rather be leading out pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler, who is on his wheel!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Tanovitchii, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Thill, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Ivanov are next, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Konig can't hold his teammate's wheel, and only his helmet is still visible on this image!

Then we have pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Intxausti, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Poljanski and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens another bike length down - which is still better than pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl and especially pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy, who has lost a lot of ground lately!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_32.jpg

800 meters to go, and now pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin is clearly accelerating, having already moved up to 3rd! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Moazemi seems to be running out of steam as well, but he's still ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png De la Cruz. However, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Habtemichael is doing a stunning job so far - let's see if he has enough left to deliver a great result!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer still seem to be waiting with their final push - let's see if they can still launch in time!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_33.jpg

But now pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin is putting the hammer down with just 500m left! He won this stage last year - he's in the best possible position for doing the same today!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Habtemichael has now clearly moved past pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Moazemi again, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya on his wheel - can the Rwandan find a second wind?

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png De la Cruz is doing a great job as well, looking stronger than pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Moazemi! Meanwhile, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin has moved up, too; followed by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler, the Irish champion is now alongside pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Laas.

On the other side of the road, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Tatarinov is still holding on as well, but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer is about to overtake him. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Schleck and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Geniez are the remaining riders in the Top 13.

Behind, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens has gained a lot of positions, and now is already level with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Intxausti and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran - and still has pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Bostner ahead of him. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Konig are another bike length further down.

Behind the Czech, a gap is opening - meaning that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy really needs to hurry up if he wants to catch up with this first group! He's now some meters ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya - while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa and especially pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz, who only is under the red kite now, are really in danger of losing quite a lot of time today!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_34.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin still has a solid lead with 300m to go, but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin are clearly closing in now! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Habtemichael is still doing a great job as well, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya still staying on his wheel. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Moazemi and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png De la Cruz could get a great stage result for their team as well - with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Tatarinov and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Geniez not that far away, either!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo tries to keep up with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin, and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler currently seems to have chosen pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya's wheel - let's see if that's the best choice!

And of course, let's not forget pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Laas and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Schleck, who are on their way to a possible Top 10 as well!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_35.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin is getting closer and closer to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer seems to be slightly fading already! This trio seems to stand above the rest today - but we still have 200 meters to go!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo is now moving up as well, almost level with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Habtemichael now, and slightly ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png De la Cruz and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Moazemi. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler are next, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Laas trying to hold pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png De la Cruz' wheel.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Intxausti, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour are the other GC favorites in the first group, whereas pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Konig seems to be losing touch as well. On the other side, we have pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy sprinting to catch up - it will be a hard job!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_36.jpg

Only 100 meters to the line - and it looks like it's going to be pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin or pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin taking the win today! And you know what? They were numbers 1 and 2 last year as well - can the Irishman reverse the result this time?

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer is clearly falling back now - can pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo even get that final podium spot? Or could pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler, who is already almost neck-and-neck with the Italian, get a Top 3 in his home race?


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_37.jpg

Only 50 meters left - and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Martin is almost level now! He has the outside lane, and hence less gradients and more speed - but more distance to cover as well! Which line is the better one?

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo doesn't seem to have enough left to challenge for a podium - but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler does! Can he catch pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer on the closing meters?

And then we finally see a strong pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran as well - who came 4th last year, maybe a Top 5 is feasible again?

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png De la Cruz now clearly is the stronger pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Kraftwerk rider, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya is still behind teammate pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Habtemichael!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_38.jpg

It's a whole lot closer than a year ago, but the result is the same: pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Aleksandr Pluchkin wins stage 5 of the Ă–sterreich-Rundfahrt ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Daniel Martin! The GC leader gets his second stage win of the race - a race he probably can't lose anymore now!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer is looking set for 3rd, but the fight for 4th will be close between pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_39.jpg

Indeed, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Rasmus Guldhammer gets his second podium of the race, after he scored the same result on stage 1. 4th place then goes to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Georg Preidler, who did a good race today, but his final push just came too late. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Rigoberto Uran gets his first satisfying stage result as well, taking 5th place.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png De la Cruz are fighting for 6th, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Habtemichael, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Wellens, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Squire are trying to get one of the final Top 10 spots.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_40.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Mattia Cattaneo easily wins this duel - and had the race been some meters longer, he might have caught pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Uran and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler as well.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png David De la Cruz finishes 7th, ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Tim Wellens and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Daniel Habtemichael.

The final Top 10 spot will likely go to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Squire, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Areruya, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour who's having a great final push, or pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Moazemi, who's hidden by the banners.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_41.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Pierre Latour rounds off today's Top 10, ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Arvin Moazemi and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Joseph Areruya. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Benat Intxausti finally sneaks past pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Robbie Squire as well, taking 13th. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Jordan Schleck makes it three pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Xero riders in the Top 15 - great job!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Martin Laas, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Gennadiy Tatarinov, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Ryan Eastman, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Alexandre Geniez and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/min.png Borislav Ivanov take the remaining Top 20 spots - which means 4 pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Kraftwerk riders in the Top 20 - they definitely deserve the lead in the team standings!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_42.jpg

We can see that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fpc.png Carthy has finally caught up with the front group, getting 22nd place. There is a small gap behind this group - let's see if it's enough to actually get some time gaps!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_43.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Konig leads home the next few riders - and indeed, they lose 32" today! Right behind him are pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Denifl and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya, who might both lose their great GC spots!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_44.jpg

Even way further down are pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa - crossing the line right ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Gebremedhin - and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz. However, they are lucky, as they get the same time as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Konig - which holds for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/des.png Abal as well (and even for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Zabel, by the way).

So, what does this all mean for the GC? One thing is clear - pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin will likely be unbeatable for the 3rd time in a row. But what has happened behind? Let's figure that out while we first celebrate the stage winner - who will appear on the podium more than once today...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_45.jpg

And that stage winner is... pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Aleksandr Pluchkin! Although his win today wasn't as dominant as last year, he still stands on top of that podium once again! He may have launched his sprint a tad too early, but finally was able to edge out pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Daniel Martin by a few inches - but the Irishman can still be content with his 2nd place!

3rd place then goes to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Rasmus Guldhammer, like on stage 1, which was won by... pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin, of course. Local hero pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/anh.png Preidler launched a bit too late and has to settle for 4th - but at least he showed the world that he still knows how to do those finishes!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_46.jpg

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Aleksandr Pluchkin has claimed this jersey on day 1 - actually there was only one day in the last three years he didn't wear it - and chances are probably beyond 99% that he'll keep it until the end.

With his stage win, he has extended his lead on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fcj.png Tim Wellens to 40" - twice the stage win bonus seconds. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png Stefan Denifl was able to hold onto 3rd, 1'44" back - hence losing almost all the advantage he had on the strong time trialists pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/azt.png Eastman and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png Cattaneo, who trail the Austrian by only 15" together with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Latour. So we'll likely have a duel for 3rd in two days - or even for more?

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Guldhammer has made a jump from 11th to 7th, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa have dropped from 4th and 6th to 9th and 10th. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Henao Montoya, having the same time as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vvg.png Penasa, is 11th. So on the first 11 spots we have the same names as pre-stage, but not in the same order and with different gaps.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_47.jpg

Just like the GC, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Aleksandr Pluchkin has won the points jersey in the last two years - and he'll very, very likely win it this year as well. He now totals 63 points, which means that he has a 30 points lead on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Florian Scheit, and 31 points on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/map.png Rasmus Guldhammer! To overtake him, it would basically take two podium spots in the next two days - thereof a win - and it's hard to see who could do this...

Barring any disaster, we already have the final KoM standings by now, with no KoM sprint left. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Ruben Fernandez wins the jersey with a total of 50 points, ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Florian Scheit with 31. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gcn.png Jarlinson Pantano Gomez finishes 3rd with 28 points. Congratulations to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/adp.png Aramco DP!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Joseph Areruya doesn't look overly happy, as he probably was hoping for more than 12th place on today's stage. But at least, he pretty much secured the U25 jersey, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/duo.png Kyeng Ho Min lost another 32" today and now trails by 1'29". Given that they have about the same TT capabilities, this advantage should be enough.

We furthermore have a change on 3rd place, as pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Aular lost 32" as well - meaning that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Jordan Schleck currently makes it two pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/xr0.png Xero riders on the podium! However, with the Ugandan being a horrible time trialists, those 31" of advantage against pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bgc.png Aular might not be sufficient...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Reports/HC/Austria/S5/mg20_austria_s05_50.jpg

Although their team leader pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Nerz had a really bad day and lost his 4th GC place today, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kmm.png Kraftwerk Man Machine still were one of only three teams having three riders in the front group - even four in the Top 20...

Both pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/zal.png DK - SVA Zalgiris and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mol.png MOL only had one man up front, hence losing 1'04" on the stage - but they're still 2nd and 3rd. They trail by 4'16" and 5'19" now - it's hard to see how they could possibly gain that much time in the final time trial!


Well, all the topographical obstacles of this tour are done. Only the closing time trial is likely to have a major impact on the final result - not at the very top, though. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/p4e.png Pluchkin once again showed his love for this race, getting his 7th stage win in three years, thereby almost securing GC and points standings for the 3rd time in a row - amazing! Let's see which sprinter has the most amazing legs tomorrow, as it's the 2nd and final opportunity for them to shine!
