Stage 5, April 7: Bilbao – Eibar-Arrate, 139.8 km

Neutral start: 13:40 (5.17 km)
Real racing: 14:01
Finish: 17:20-17:41

The queen stage of this Vuelta al País Vasco departs from Bilbao. Unlike several more moderate stages in this edition, Stage 5 is a traditional Basque rompepiernas that will wear down the riders in advance of tomorrow’s time trial. The iconic summit at Arrate makes up the finish, this year approached by a less well-known slope starting at Matxaria. This is where the GC men will finally strive to carve out a decisive time gap to their rivals.

The climbs:

Km 44.7, Pagatza: 2nd cat., 5.62% avg
Km 71.1, Izuako: 1st cat., 7.02% avg
Km 91.8, Trabakuako: 3rd cat., 5.16% avg
Km 106.2, Izuako: 1st cat., 7.02% avg
