Alcala de Guadaira: Caleb Ewan celebrated the biggest win of his career on Wednesday, the 21-year-old Australian claiming the fifth stage of Spain`s Vuelta with Dutch rider Tom Dumoulin the new leader.

Ewan, tackling his debut Vuelta, prevailed in a dash for the line after a 167.5 kilometre ride from Rota to Alcala de Guadaira.

His teammate, Johan Esteban Chaves, started the day in possession of the leader`s red jersey but the Colombian`s progress was hampered when he picked up a minor injury.

Ewan`s win was made all the sweeter as he crossed with specialist sprinters John Degenkolb of Germany and Slovakia`s Peter Sagan in his wake.
