Vuelta a Burgos Feminas

15 May 2024

After yesterday’s mythical Durango-Durango, we will finish the first block of Spanish races at the Vuelta a Burgos. Four days of competition with several possibilities for the sprinters but with interesting mountains to select the peloton if necessary.

The first stage will go from Villagonzalo Pedernales to Burgos. There will be 123 kilometres passing through Alto de la Coculina, Alto de la Nuez and Alto del Aguilón, all three of them third category and finally the intermediate sprint in Arroyal.

The second day, also 123 kilometres long, will start from Briviesca and the first kilometres will take in the Alto de Barcina, in the third category. From there the terrain is favourable until the road turns uphill with the Alto de Rozales, a 2.4 kilometre climb at 6.5% that will give the climbers a chance of victory.

Saturday, between Roa de Duero and Melgar de Fernamental, is the easiest day of all, with no major climbs or scoring mountains, just the intermediate sprint in Padilla de Abajo a few kilometres from the finish line.

Finally, Sunday will be the day that could decide the general classification. They will start from Peñaranda de Duero and will have the first climb in Alto de Arroyo, third category. At the end, the Alto de Rozavientos, 3.5 kilometres at 9.3%, will be the one that will leave the strongest riders in front, but the stage will not finish at the top, they will have to descend 10 kilometres to Canicosa de la Sierra.

Our team for this race in Spain will be: Tamara Dronova, Elena Pirrone, Antri Christoforou, Sylvie Swinkels, Giorgia Vettorello and Sofia Collinelli.
