Arnaud Démare (Grouapma-FDJ) sprinted to victory in the fifth stage of the Giro d'Italia, the Frenchman proving his speed in the final dash to the line.

Démare had been dropped earlier in the race on the climb up Portella Mandrazi, but he managed to get back into contention through the help of his Groupama-FDJ teammates. The team perfectly lead Démare out, keeping him away from trouble in the final corner and allowing him a free run to the line.
