Matteo Trentin regained the overall lead of Britain’s Tour after finishing third in phase five.
The 174.1km stage, which started and ended in Birkenhead with the route taking the riders throughout Cheshire, was acquired by Dutch driver Dylan Groenewegen.
Groenewegen finished as Britain’s Matt Walls and Trentin.
Trentin, riding for Mitchelton-Scott, retains a lead over Dutch cyclist Mathieu van der Poel.
Thirty-year-old Trentin had been high after stage three, but dropped before regaining top spot and today holds a three-second benefit.
The sixth of eight phases takes place on Thursday and is now a 14.4km individual time trial in Pershore, Worcestershire.
Groenewegen’s victory on point five had been his third in five days of this contest after winning stage one from Glasgow to Kirkcudbright on Saturday and point three from Berwick even though he sits 61st.
With three stages you will find 3 British riders in the top 20. Ben Swift out of Team Ineos is first known, Matthew Holmes of Madison Genesis is 15th with Swiftcarbon Pro Cycling’s James Shaw at 19th.
