Costa Rican Daniel Bonilla (Inteja Imca-Ridea DCT) won the fifth stage of the International Tour of Guadalupe by beating Venezuelan José Alarcón from the flight; while Frenchman Stefan Bennett (Team Pro Immo Nicolas Roux) maintained the lead of the race.
The Tico runner took the victory, after traveling 137 kilometers between Vieux-Habitants and Lamentin in 3’44: 36 hours; while in second position came the Venezuelan José Alarcón (Uni Sport Lamentinois) and third came the French Thomas Bonnet (Vendée U).
The two South Americans, Bonilla and Alarcón, starred in the day’s getaway after walking more than 80 kilometers escaped from the lot of favorites, which arrived two minutes late, in a race tactic that played with the location of both in the general classification individual, in which the greatest advance was made by the Venezuelan, seventh now at 6:58 behind the leader.
The pack among the main peloton pursuers was taken by Frenchman Bonnet, who beat Alex Zingle (CC Etupes), Spaniard Benjamin Prades (Inteja Imca-Ridea DCT) and German Heiko Homrighausen (Team Embrace The World). The Venezuelan Luis Guillermo Mora and the Colombian Edwin Sánchez arrived in this fragmented group.
This Wednesday the sixth stage of the International Tour of Guadeloupe will take place, starting in Petit-Canal and ending in Morne-à-l’Eau, over a route of 150.5 kilometers on undulating terrain. The successor of Frenchman Adrien Guillonnet, champion in 2019, will be known on Sunday in Baie-Mahualt.
