Almeida beats Ángel López and wins final stage Tour of Burgos, Sivakov overall winner

João Almeida has the fifth and final stage of the Tour of Burgos written in his name. The Portuguese was a size too big for Miguel Ángel López on an uphill finish, who finished second. The overall victory ended up in the hands of Pavel Sivakovy.

Bol, Frigo and Canal are flight of the day

One more time on Saturday all brakes were allowed to go wild in the Vuelta a Burgos. The riders were ready for a tough day in the saddle with the necessary climbs, culminating in the final climb: Lagunas de Neila. Those who did not have to conquer these mountains were the did-not-starters Ben Hermans, Stefan De Bod and Timo Roosen. The latter withdrew from the round to attend the wedding of teammate Mike Teunissen.

Anyway, the remaining 105 riders started to race right from the start. Several men tried to form a leading group, but were quickly called to order. In the end, three drivers received approval from the peloton and the race of the day was a fact. The names: Jetse Bol (Burgos-BH), Marco Frigo (Israel Cycling Academy) and Carlos Canal (Euskaltel-Euskadi). They cycled together for more than four minutes.

Leading group falls apart, Harper tries it solo

In the peloton, the pace was set by Astana Qazaqstan Team, EF Education-EasyPost and INEOS Grenadiers. There were no major concerns, however, as it was highly unlikely that the front runners would hold out in the very tough final phase. After all, on the Alto del Collado de Vilviestre – the penultimate climb – the difference started to decrease.

At the foot of the Lagunas de Neila the leading group had already disintegrated, after which it was soon the end of the story for the refugees. We didn’t have to wait long for the next attack, because it came from Chris Harper (Team Jumbo-Visma). The Australian took about ten seconds on the peloton, where the door in the back was wide open.

Almeida and Ángel López can fight it out

The men of INEOS Grenadiers, in particular Carlos Rodríguez, were responsible for the fast pace. After all, they wanted to secure the overall victory with Sivakov. With just under three kilometers to cycle, the Grenadiers also crack Harper. ngel López then tried to run away, but he didn’t get away either.

Who was the next to attack? Sivakov himself! The Frenchman got teammate Rodrígez and Ángel López with him, after which Almeida also managed to hook up a little later. The Portuguese then started a flashy attack and was allowed to sprint with Ángel López for the stage victory. It was Almeida who turned out to have the strongest legs!
