Boels Ladies Tour: Van der Breggen nabs stage 5

Van Vleuten finishes second and retains race lead

Anna van der Breggen (Boels Dolmans) won Saturday's fifth stage of the Boels Ladies Tour, making a late escape with race leader Annemiek van Vleuten (Orica Scott) and then beating her compatriot in a two-rider sprint in Vaals.

The stage saw a number of splits and regroupings throughout the afternoon on a lumpy parcours in the Dutch Limburg, with multiple breakaway moves getting clear only to be mopped back up before long. The pack gradually shed riders as the day wore on, making it even harder for the peloton to close down the powerful Dutch pair when Van der Breggen jumped and Van Vleuten bridged on the final lap of a small finishing circuit.

The duo quickly built a sizable advantage and then battled for the stage victory between themselves, with Van der Breggen seizing the win. Her Boels Dolmans teammate won the sprint for third in the chasing peloton.

Van Vleuten remains comfortably in the race lead after five stages, sitting 43 seconds up on second-placed Van der Breggen with only Sunday's finale left to race. Sunweb's Ellen van Dijk currently rounds out the provisional GC podium in third overall at 1:03 back.
