The peloton spent most of the fifth stage anticipating crosswinds which never blew but there was still late drama on the approach to Albacete.

Daniel Friebe is still in Spain following the Vuelta a España, and he is joined by Richard Moore and Lionel Birnie to discuss the day’s racing.

We hear from Kenny Elissonde, who was talking down his chances of taking the red jersey before the stage, and discuss the crash which cost Rein Taaramae another day in the overall lead. We also hear from Pavel Sivakov about the crosswinds and Matt Winston on DSM’s hopes after Romain Bardet was caught in the crash and lost more than 12 minutes. We also discuss Jasper Philipsen’s second stage win and the brewing battle for the green jersey with Fabio Jakobsen.
