Belgian rider Tim Wellens outsprinted Frenchman Guillaume Martin to take the fifth stage of the Vuelta a Espana on Saturday, as defending champion Primoz Roglic finished fourth to retain the overall lead.

Martin and Wellens were part of a three man break with Dutchman Thymen Arensman of Sunweb.

"That kick at the end brought me to victory," he said.

Roglic avoided a crash on a corner on the final climb in which points leader Irishman Dan Martin went down and then powered away from the pack.
