Luis Leon Sanchez Wins Stage 5 of 2010 Tour Down Under

Five years after he won both the third stage and the final general classification of the Tour Down Under, Luis Leon Sanchez (Team Caisse d'Epargne) won again in Australia earlier today.

the climb they really looked after me and we had to chase really hard all the way to the finish. We didn't have time to panic. The break had 40 seconds. We just had to start chasing. The team has been working hard for me all week so I had to show them that I was thankful by really suffering to stay there on the climb today. Mick Rogers could have gone for his own victory today too but he wanted to stay with me and help me win the Tour," Greipel added.

Tomorrow is a 90 km circuit race in downtown Adelaide.
