Jasper Philipsen - Vuelta 2021 Favourites stage 5: Sprint in Albacetefoto: Cor VosThe 5th stage at La Vuelta is a red carpet ride into Albacete for the sprinters. The route is flat, the finale is even flatter. Who'll succeed Nacer Bouhanni?

It’s been eight years since La Vuelta visited Albacete and the Frenchman outgunned Michael Matthews and Peter Sagan on the line.

A new sprint finish in Albacete is next to certain. The route is extremely flat.
