One more to unlearn it, then the Tour of Burgos on top. With Pavel Sivakov in the leader’s jersey, the peloton heads to the top of Lagunas de Neila in the fifth and final stage. The final climb will decide the classification and normally also the stage result. In the leader’s jersey discusses the course, the weather and the favourites.
Route stage 5 Tour of Burgos 2022
The fifth stage can sometimes lead to a nice fight for the mountain jersey. With the Alto del Majadal (7.4 km at 2.3%), Alto Arroyo (3.6 km at 2.5%) and Alto del Collado de Vilviestre (3.0 km at 4.5%) there are still a lot of points to pick up before we start the last ascent of the day. Vojtech Repa, Mikel Azparren and Joel Nicolau all still have a chance to win the mountain jersey.
However, the decision of this Tour of Burgos will take place at the Lagunas de Neila. The climb of 11.5 kilometers at 6.2 percent is irregular, with percentages well above ten percent in the absolute final phase.
Start: 12.15 pm
Finish: around 4.45 pm
Weather stage 5 Tour of Burgos 2022
Copy-paste, all week. In Burgos it has been hot all week and the temperatures also go well above 30 degrees in the last leg. Once again there will be hardly any wind, which means that it is necessary to lubricate, cool and drink well.
Favorites stage 5 Tour of Burgos 2022
In the fifth stage, the classification riders seem to be the top favorites. Pavel Sivakovy (INEOS) has already shown that it is in excellent form and is riding in the leader’s jersey for a reason. Also with his teammate Tao Geoghegan Hart must certainly be taken into account. The BORA duo Wilco Kelderman and Jai Hindley can also bring beautiful things, as well as Bahrain Victorious climber Santiago Buitrago.
EF Education – EasyPost also has a strong couple at the front of the leaderboard, namely Ruben Guerreiro and Esteban Chaves. A little further in the standings are also a number of strong climbers, such as Miguel Angel Lopez (Astana), Alejandro Valverde, Ivan Sosa (both Movistar) and Joao Almeida (UAE).
