The fifth stage of Santander Brasil Ride Bahia, with the return of Guaratinga to Arraial D'Ajuda, in Porto Seguro, was marked by opposite situations in the elites, men and women. Among men, Hans Becking (NLD) and José Dias (POR) increased the gap in the lead and just watched the dispute for the first place in the stage, between the winners of the day, Gustavo Xavier and Alex Malacarne, against Edson Rezende and Ulan Galinski, runners up. Among women, the Germans Naima Diesner and Anna Jördens won the third consecutive stage and are now just 5 minutes behind Marcella Toldi and Lutecia Azevedo, after ending the second day 39 minutes behind the leaders.

Four teams lead the stage most of the time today: Periklis Ilias/Andreas Miltiadis (DMT Marconi II Team), who had to face a problem on Andreas' wheel on Km 100, and had no chance to compete for the podium; Gustavo Xavier/Alex Malacarne (Specialized Racing BR Team), Edson Rezende/Ulan Galisnki (Caloi Henrique Avancini Racing team); and Hans Becking/José Dias (Buff Scott MTB team). 

With the results of the day, Hans and José lead by 18min58, totaling 18h14min31 during the five days. News came in second and third places. Rezende and Galinski are in second (18:33:29), followed by Xavier and Malacarne (18:37:38). Overall leaders for two stages (2 and 3), and best in the Americas in stage four, Sherman Trezza and Lukas Kaufmann (Ciclogiro Scott/Hoffmannpedal Sport Team) are now fourth places overall (18h41min18).

Germans shorten the distance - Naima Diesner and Anna Jördens continue to chase women's leaders, Marcella Toldi and Lutecia Azevedo. After having mechanical problems last Monday (8), the gap was 39 minutes, now only 5 minutes separate the two teams in their quest for the title. 

"I lost one life today," Anna said playfully. "45 minutes before the start, I had to see the race doctor, room because I wasn't feeling well at all. During the race, the only thing I saw was Naima's rear wheel. In the end, I felt really good and she felt bad. That’s life in cycling. That's the game," added the German.
