Live: 2024 Vuelta Femenina Stage 5

The first serious mountains test in the 2024 Vuelta Femenina comes on Stage 5. A summit finish will see the GC shaken up once more with the likes of red jersey wearer Marianne Vos set to fall down the standings. The battle for that jersey looks set to be between Demi Vollering and Elisa Longo Borghini now for the rest of this year’s race, with pre-race favourite Gaia Realini losing 2 minutes yesterday. The diminutive climber may be able to claw some of that back on Stage 5 but still represents too much of a GC threat to be allowed to go clear.

Other riders in the GC hunt who didn’t lose time yesterday include Riejanne Markus, Kasia Niewiadoma, Juliette Labous and Niamh Fisher-Black. We’ll see how realistic their GC-winning ambitions are after the stage today, coming just after a full day of work in a lead break the overnight recovery will be super important coming into this one.
