Vuelta Stage 5: Gross Greipel Strucked Again

After winning the crash affected Stage 4 two days ago, Andre Greipel continues the domination of Team Colombia-HTC in this year Vuelta de Espana by comfortably winning today's 5th stage from Tarragona to Vigaros, beating Tom Boonen and Danielle Bennati towards the finish line. It was the 2nd win for Greipel and the 3rd for his team in this year Vuelta. With this win, Greipel finally manages to grab the 'Maillot Oro' from Saxo Bank's Fabian Cancellara, by the virtue of time bonuses. Greipel now leads the Vuelta by six seconds from Boonen heading into tomorrow's sixth stage around the town of Xativa.
