AIA, Spain (AP) -- Mikel Landa of Spain broke away from the pack and sustained his lead as he climbed to win the fifth stage of the Tour of Basque Country on Friday, while Sergio Henao of Colombia retained the overall leader's jersey.

The locally-born Astana rider who crossed the line in four hours, six minutes, one second, finished three seconds in front of Tim Wellens of Belgium, with Tom Danielson of the United States third, 16 seconds behind.

Joaquin Rodriguez of Spain is second overall behind Henao, while Simon Yates of Britain is third overall after a mountainous 155.5-kilometer (96.6-mile) ride from Eibar to Aia that included a category 1 ascent up the Alto de Urraki peak.

The six-stage race ends Saturday with an 18.3 kilometer (11.4 mile) time-trial in and around Aia.
