Sergio De Lis made sure Euskaltel didn't miss out on presence in the break of the day in today's fifth stage of the Volta a Catalunya. The San Sebastián native, or Donostia, call it what you like, went after Davide Malacarne and Javier Ramirez, the duo having already got a gap after attacking earlier on. Together with Gustavo Cesar Veloso he managed to bridge up and the quartet quickly got a sizeable gap back to the bunch. In the interests of the team Sergio won both intermediate sprints, as well as taking some points on the stage's many climbs. The break was, with the exception of Malacarne who'd go on to win the stage, reeled back in, and Sergio eventually ended up in 56th place, 2:11 down. Igor and Iván again did well to come in with the main group of favourites, both 40 seconds down. Miguel and Gorka both came in 4:22 back, while Aitor, Jonathan and Daniel all came in 16:30 in arrears. Overall Igor is now a good, if unspectacular 11th, 1:27 down, while Iván is five places further back, 10 more seconds adrift. Not bad!
