Marc Soler (UAE Team Emirates) managed to impressively hold onto victory on stage five of the Vuelta a España, attacking from the break on the final climb of the day and solo to the finish line first.

Jake Stewart (Groupama-FDJ) initially attacked on the final of five climbs in the day, 25km from the finish line in Bilbao. He managed to get a 40-second lead part way up the category two mountain, but Soler eventually caught him with 1.2km still left on the ascent.
