Bora-hansgrohe's Lennard Kämna has taken the win of the Volta a Catalunya stage 5 after a solo effort in the last kilometres.

The German rider was part of the front group at the end of the last climb of the day and soon after launched an attack that left all the other riders behind. He crossed the finish line on his own, 39 seconds before Ruben Guerreiro and 42 before Mikel Bizkarra.

"I'm very happy with this victory," said Kämna. "Yesterday, I tried this already, but I went a little bit early. I didn't have the best legs in the first part of the stage today and I just made it to the group. However, on the last climb I was feeling strong again, so I gave it another shot and I'm happy that in the end, it worked out.

"It's a fabulous feeling – it's my first race of the season and it's great to be here in good shape and to take a victory. I had a really good feeling at the moment I attacked. Everyone was watching one another and they were a little annoyed that we weren't working well, so it seemed the right time to try. There are a couple of stages still left, so we'll always keep trying."
