Saudi Tour 2023: Simone Consonni powers to stage five win, Ruben Guerreiro wraps up overall victory

Simone Consonni of Cofidis impressively out sprinted Dylan Groenewegen (Jayco AIUla) to land victory in the final stage five of the Saudi Tour 2023.

Jayco AIUla mistimed their leadout for the Dutchman, meaning Groenewegen was forced to go a long way out with the finish line in sight. 

In the end, the Dutchman would tire meaning that Consonni  and Pascal Ackermann of UAE Team Emirates were able to get on terms before passing the Jayco AIUla man.

Eventually, the Italian fast man would have the edge to take a superb stage win for Cofidis.

Meanwhile, Ruben Guerreiro (Movistar) crossed the finish safely with his Movistar teammates to wrap up overall victory.
