Vuelta a Andalucia stage 5 live - Pogacar secures overall win


Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the final stage of the Vuelta a Andalucía.

It's another hilly day out today as the race draws to a close.

The riders are just heading out for the neutral zone ahead of the start proper in around 10 minutes. 184km on the menu today, including another uphill finish.

Four classified climbs coming up today, including the first-category Puerto del Sol midway through the stage.

It's another chance for UAE Team Emirates and Pogačar to win a stage if they want to bring the break back early.

He's in the overall lead and only a total disaster would prevent him from taking home the yellow jersey today.

184km to go

It's a rolling start today but the riders will quickly be heading uphill for the third-category test at the Alto El Cerrajón, which comes after 25km.

Early attacks from Xabier Isasa (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Dries Van Gestel (TotalEnergies), and Vincent Van Hemelen (Flanders-Baloise), among others.

The riders are on a short downhill run before gradually heading back uphill on the way to that first climb of the day.

182km to go

Kevin Colleoni (Jayco-AlUla), Dries De Bondt (Alpecin-Deceuninck), Erik Fetter (Eolo-Kometa), and Pascal Eenkhoorn (Lotto-Dstny) are out front with Isasa, Van Gestel and Van Hemelen.

The group of seven currently have 30 seconds on the peloton.

Attacks continue to fly up front.

Yesterday, we saw a long battle for the breakaway which only concluded after 70km of racing. Maybe today the race to get out front has already been decided...
