Jackson Rodriguez (Androni Giocattoli) climbed his way to a stage win in stage five of the Tour de San Luis today. The Venezuelan's victory wasn't enough to unseat Italian Vincenzo Nibal (Liquigas-Doimo) from the top of the general classification, but he was able to move himself into the top 10. Stage two winner Rafael Valls(Footon-Servetto-Fuji) finished in second place six seconds back, while Alexander Kolobnev (Katusha) crossed the line four seconds later in third.

Nibali now leads the race by thirty seconds over Colombian Jose Serpa (Androni Giocattoli) and has one minute and nine second advantage over Rafael Valls.

Today's 156.4 kilometer stage between San Luis and La Carolina was only an appetizer for tomorrow's Queen Stage on the penultimate day. The race's overall crown is expected to be decided on the ascent of the 1,450 meter El Mirador del Sol. The first category climb is 10.3 kilometers with an average gradient of 8.7 percent.
