The Tour of Andalucia was concluded by a fifth intense stage this Sunday with an uphill final towards Chiclana de Segura (6.4km at 5.6%). After working in the lead of the peloton the previous days, Frenchman Théo Delacroix showed himself in the front of the race again, this time by joining the breakaway of the day after 10 kilometer on the flanks of the Puerto Fuente del Gallo, the first of four categorized climbs. The breakaway of nineteen riders stayed ahead of the peloton until the final 70 kilometer, so it was the peloton which crossed the intermediate sprint in Santo Tomé first.
A group of thirteen counterattackers was formed before the final climb and battled for the victory of this fifth stage. Italian climber Domenico Pozzovivo accompanied the best climbers in the peloton in a group of around ten men and concluded the five day race or his first appearance in the colors of the Belgian team in 21st place in the classification.
