The Italian Niccolo Bonifazio (Direct Energie) has the fifth stage in the Tour of Gabon won. The Italian dashed off faster than the Algerian Reguigui and the Frenchman Manzin. For Bonifazio was already his third victory, he remains, of course, also leader.
There was a tiny bit of history written today in the Tropicale Amissa Bongo. The stage from Bitam to Mongomo was only 120 kilometres long but it passed in three African countries: host country Gabon, Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea. It was the first time in the history of the African championships in one race, multiple countries were visited. The Tour of Gabon ends on Sunday.
