Giro gallery: stage 5 – Contador into the lead

With five kilometres to go in the fifth stage of the 98th Giro d’Italia the dance began: Alberto Contador got out of the saddle and surged ahead of his elite group. With his chain in the big ring, Richie Porte responded quickly and effectively. Within a minute it became apparent who the main contenders for the maglia rosa in 2015 are. Contador, Porte and Fabio Aru.

We continue our online galleries from the Giro with another collection of photos by Wei Yuet Wong.

  • So, @nathanpeterhaas wears the green jersey in stage 3. But only as caretaker. 
Points classification is led by Caleb with Peter Sagan ranked second. 
But, a relatively recent rule change means that world or national champions can opt out of wearing a classification jersey... if THEY are a caretaker (ie. not leader). Clear?
  • Good to see @calebewan back@in@the #TDU leader’s jersey. 
Hear our interview with him on the TDU @soundcloud station.
