Yates said of the victory: "[It was] a hard day in general, but we had the whole team there, not just today, but the whole week. We've been fighting for this stage and finally we got it today.

"This was the main stage for me... after the Canadian classics and just before the Italian classics at the end of the season, this fit in the calendar perfectly, and here we are with a victory. So it's been a good day and hopefully a good week."

The fifth stage between Rabac and Platak is 138km in distance, which Yates completed in 3:40:01.
