Favorites stage 1 Tour of Burgos 2022 | Punchers ready for traditional climb to castle

Black hole? Which black hole? After the Tour de France for men and women, we continue towards the Vuelta a España, which starts on August 19. In the Tour of Burgos the gentlemen will prepare, with a traditional uphill finish on day one. In the leader’s jersey discusses the course, the weather and the favorites for the stage win.

The first stage in Burgos has been the same for years. At least he finishes the same. The finish at Alto del Castillo has become tradition, with the cobblestones in the square, the steep sections and the chance for punchers to take the first leader’s jersey of this round. With 157 kilometers it is not too long a ride, so everyone will still be nice and fresh for the final.

In Burgos it will not be flat for five days, but there is still only one categorized col in the course besides the climb of the Alto del Castillo. The Alto de Altotero is a tough thing with 8.4 kilometers at 6.0 percent, but unfortunately not a crucial passage with the top eighty kilometers from the finish. After the climb it goes up and down for a longer time, on the rolling roads in Spain.

Sixteen kilometers from the end we start for the first time at the Alto del Castillo. With 1.1 kilometers it is not a long climb and with 6.1 percent on average not too steep. However, don’t let that distract you too much, because it remains an irregular bitch. In the first meters it already gets steep, before things level off a bit and we race over the cobblestones. The percentages go above 7 percent in the last 200 meters.

Weather stage 1 Tour of Burgos 2022

The Tour of Burgos is an excellent test for the Vuelta every year, and it’s not just because of the course. Just like in the Tour of Spain, it is usually hot in Burgos and that will be no different on Tuesday. In the afternoon we hit 35 degrees, so that will undoubtedly take some getting used to for some riders. There is never really a strong wind during the race, it actually only picks up after the finish around 4.50 pm. In the final there is a warm breeze from the southeast, so diagonally against.

The list of participants for the Tour of Burgos is still far from complete. The overview below can therefore still be adjusted.

Those who have checked in recent years will only see punchers in the top ten in the results of the first stage in Burgos. That varies from Giacomo Nizzolo in 2019 to Edward Planckaert last year. We are therefore looking for explosive types, men who can pull themselves apart for a kilometer. In that regard, let’s start with Alejandro Valverde, a master at such stages throughout his career. The Movistar leader is coming back from a serious injury, so how good is he?

Does the winner of the ride not ride with UAE Team Emirates? That team has Matteo Trentin also another fast man up the hill and maybe also can count on the explosive one Joao Almeida. In that respect we also shift Jai Hindley forward. He proved in the Giro to be the fastest man when it comes to sprints. The question is whether the BORA-hansgrohe leader is in Giro form again.

At INEOS it seems Carlos Rodriguez the explosive man, though we saw Omar Fraile sometimes shine in such a field. And since we have already seen gentlemen like Nizzolo participate, we do not exclude the better climbing sprinters. What about Ivan Garcia Cortina on behalf of Movistar? Davide Ballerini might try on behalf of Quick Step.
