Deceuninck-Quick-Step did a one-two on the fifth stage of Itzulia Basque Country, with Mikkel Honoré taking the victory and Josef Cerny finishing second.

The two riders were part of the breakaway of the day on a day that suited the escapees. The duo arrived to the last part of the race with Julien Bernard (Trek-Segafredo), managed to work well together to leave him behind and they took the first two spots on the day.

"It was our goal to be in the breakaway and once we got there, we worked very hard to remain as much as possible at the front," said Honoré. "With our gap standing at one minute on the climb, it looked like a hard task, but we gave everything there and continued pushing. In the closing kilometres, I jumped on the short hill and waited for Josef at the top so we could go together to the line.

"He was incredible today and I want to point out that this isn't my victory, but a win shared by the two of us, because I wouldn't have made it without him. Getting to the line together with a teammate and celebrating a victory is one of the most beautiful things in cycling."
