Marc Soler has won the fifth stage of the Vuelta a España, starting in Irun and finishing in Bilbao. The Catalan runner has escaped in the Alto del Vivero, when he was facing the climb to this port for the second time, and has been able to maintain his advantage over the group of pursuers, who have ended up stalking him through the streets of Bilbao but without being able to catch up. This is the second stage victory in La Vuelta for Marc Soler, who already won one in the 2020 edition.
Rudy Molard becomes the new race leader, with a two-second lead over Wright. Arndt is third.
