Izagirre stays in contention ahead of decider














Jon Izagirre stayed in contention for a high overall placing in the Tour of Poland by keeping pace with the pack on today's fifth stage from Rabka Zdrok to ski jumping-mad Zakopane.

Tomorrow's leg to Bukowina Tatrzanska is likely to play a huge factor in deciding the overall winner of the WorldTour stage-race, and the youngest of the Izagirres is lying in a healthy 15th, just 13 seconds in arrears, going into the penultimate stage. Miguel Minguez had his best day in Poland thus far , staying with the peloton all the way to the line.

As for the others, it's been a decisively below-par performance all around as there's no representation whatsoever in the breaks, and the riders seem to struggle with the high pace.

Stage five results:
  • (1, Ben Swift (Sky), 4:01:22)
  • 19, Jon Izagirre, s.t.
  • 33, Miguel Minguez, s.t.
  • 72, Alan Pérez, 0:22
  • 77, Juan José Oroz, s.t.
  • 93, Romain Sicard, s.t.
  • 118, Igor Antón, 1:43
  • 164, Pierre Cazaux, 9:11
  • 182, Adrián Sáez, 15:08

I know that Anton is looking further ahead but I was hoping for a better show given the level of this race. If he has ambitions for the Vuelta then I would have thought he would be able to stay with the main bunch here. Oh well, I guess he knows what he is doing.

No, I agree with you, it's worrying he isn't able to stay with the pack. There's still some time left, but he should have been in decent shape by now.
