Etixx - Quick-Step rider Rigoberto Uran finished 17th, 1'59" down on solo stage winner Jan Polanc (Lampre-Merida) in the 152km Giro d'Italia Stage 5 finish on Wednesday.

 

Polanc went solo out of the original five-rider breakaway with about 10km to go in the stage, after the breakaway was given as much as an 11 minute advantage at one point during the stage. Sylvain Chavanel (IAM Cycling) did his best to chase Polanc, but finished 1'31" down in 2nd. Fabio Aru (Astana) was 3rd out of a chase group that had just caught up to Chavanel before the line. 

 

Aru's group included Richie Porte (Team Sky) and Alberto Contador (Tinkoff-Saxo). Those three went ahead of the peloton after Contador originally attacked with 4.5km to go. Those three kept trying to attack each other, but to no avail. Meanwhile, Uran was in a group behind and he crossed 28" down on the Contador group. Uran did his best to minimize time loss and is now 12th in the GC, 1'22" down on Contador as the new race leader.

 

"This week has been really hard for me. The start of the Giro was not easy. Yesterday and today I lost a bit of time to the best but there is still a long way to Milan. This is my current condition, I hope to grow. 1'22 "is already a significant gap from the pink jersey, but I'm confident for the next stages."

 

Etixx - Quick-Step looks next to a 183km Stage 6 on Thursday. The stage is flat at the beginning and end, but has a Category 4 climb and plenty of undulation in the middle of the parcours.
