Stage 5 - November 5: Ouahigouya - Yako, 71.5 km

Marien wins in a stage-long breakaway

In a day where there were no major changes to the general classification, Belgian rider Christophe Marien (Aliplast) won stage 5 of the Tour du Faso. Marien was part of a seven man breakaway that finished just 27 seconds clear of the main peloton. Frenchmen Anthony Ravard (Loire Atlantique) and Johann Sorel (Seine Maritime) were the second and third placed riders.

The stage from Ouahigouya to Yako was 71.5 km, and the pace was on from the gun. Johann Sorel attacked immediately and took his Seine Maritime teammate Gaylord Cumont with him, along with Jérémie Ouedraogo and Lucien Zongo (Burkina Faso A), Martinien Tega (Cameroon), Anthony Ravard and Jérémie Dupas (Loire Atlantique), and Aliplast's Christof Marien.

Dupas was dropped, and the remaining riders in the break led the race by 2 minutes at one stage. However, the Marco Polo team of race leader Joost Legtenberg managed to pull the gap back to 27 seconds by the finish.

Marien easily won the sprint from Ravard, with Sorel coming in as third. Legtenberg kept his yellow jersey but there is still plenty of racing to come in this year's Tour du Faso.
