Day Five - Com to Manututo

The smooth roads of stage five offered an easier ride, but organisers made up the challenge with distance.  143km including some serious KOMs it was to be a hard day out.

Nick rode well in the first stages, hanging with the bunch - which disintegrated as the first KOMs were encountered! He managed to hang in some smaller bunches until the last water stop at 112km, where he was forced to stop and fill up.   He called in tired, but very very happy with a 4.59.38 finish which still has him in 13th place for GC 40+.

One day to go!  Good Luck.
