The fifth stage of the Skoda Tour de Luxembourg saw riders cover 183.7km of hilly terrain from Mersch to the capital.

Portugal's João Almeida was crowned winner of the 81st edition of the Tour de Luxembourg on Saturday. Frenchman David Gaudu won the final stage, followed by Almeida. Luxembourg rider Alex Kirsch came sixth on the final day of the Tour.

Luxembourg's Tom Wirtgen finished top of his compatriots in the overall standings, reaching 47th place.

Almeida took first place with a 46 second gap ahead of second-placed Marc Hirschi, of Switzerland.

After much criticism surrounding the 2020 edition, this year's Tour unfolded without issues, with organisers including president Andy Schleck receiving praise for the event
