Pelayo Sánchez brilla en la jornada final de Vuelta a Asturias – BURGOS BH

Corriendo en casa y ante su gente, Pelayo Sánchez fue sexto en la meta de la Calle Uría. Una caída apartó a Dani Navarro de poder meterse en el top-10, con Jesús Ezquerra asegurando su maillot de las metas volantes.


Satisfechos tras la Vuelta a Asturias, con doble presencia en el podium final y un excelente protagonismo con Ángel Madrazo filtrado en la fuga del día, defendiendo la clasificación de metas volantes, Jesús Ezquerra confirmando esa clasificación y Pelayo Sánchez disputando la llegada en un reducido grupo.


La caída en la parte final que apartó a Dani Navarro del pelotón cabecero ensombrece la buena Vuelta a Asturias de todos los morados, siempre en la pelea y con un balance muy satisfactorio por los méritos conseguidos.


Pelayo Sánchez: «Venía a la Vuelta a Asturias después de haber estado sin entrenar. No he tenido las mejores piernas en las dos primeras etapas y he ido de menos a más. Qué mejor día que en la etapa de casa, en mi ciudad Oviedo, para tratar de disputar la etapa. Es una pena la caída de Dani Navarro porque no ha podido rematar lo que hubiera sido el colofón a una gran carrera del equipo».

Yates takes an impressive second victory in three-days with a solo win on the final day at Vuelta Asturias – Team BikeExchange Jayco

Stage one winner Simon Yates has taken a second victory at the three-day Vuelta Asturias, attacking on today’s final climb and riding away solo, to snatch another spectacular win as part of the ‘Final Touches‘ to his Giro d’Italia preparations.
 
After bringing back a breakaway of four riders ahead of the final climb, Team BikeExchange-Jayco continued to set a fierce tempo at the head of the peloton, leading into ‘Violeo,’ a short 3.1km climb with sections as steep as 20% and an average gradient of 9.2%.

Australian powerhouse Callum Scotson then launched an attack on the bottom slopes of the climb which Yates used as a launch pad, jumping across to his teammate before darting away again, with just one rider able to hold on his wheel initially. 

As the road continued to head north, Yates pressed on the pedals once again, riding away from his rivals to crest the top of the climb and barrel down a technical descent alone, and towards the finish line with a healthy advantage.
 
The 29-year-old maintained his lead over a small group of chasers on the flat road to the finishing town of Oviedo, crossing the line with a 37 second gap to take his second victory of the race. The success brings both Yates and the Australian outfit confidence ahead of the upcoming Giro d’Italia, starting on Friday, 6th May.
 
Simon Yates – 1st place
“It was a good race today in the end. I had a little bit of a bad day yesterday, just with the heat. It was the first really hot race that I had done all year but today I bounced back very well, the legs felt good and the team rode really well again.

They controlled all day, set me up well for the final attack on the last climb, so it all went to plan and now we are looking forward to the Giro, which starts already in five days.”

Matt White – Head Sport Director
“Today was a short, intense and relatively flat day. We had a really crucial and very, very tough climb to the finish. As we have been for the last couple of days, we continued our process of preparing for the Giro, we controlled the day and brought the break back and the boys put Simon in a very good position at the bottom of the climb.
 
Callum Scotson slipped away on the bottom slopes of the climb and Simon went across to him. He rode a tempo that nobody could follow, then he was in the safest place to be, ahead solo, on a very tricky descent where there was a crash in the main group behind. 

Simon was too strong, and it was a good comeback after yesterday. We know the reason why Simon suffered yesterday. Traditionally he suffers with the first shock of high temperatures and humidity in the season, and we have now got that out of the way with two hot days here. 

We walk away with two wins from this race, the team is in a really good place, and we built some really good cohesiveness. Now it’s legs up, recover and focus on getting across to Budapest to start the Giro d’Italia next week.”

Sosa y Movistar Team reinan en la Vuelta a Asturias

Noveno triunfo en la ronda astur para la estructura ‘telefónica’

Un sólido trabajo de los ‘telefónicos’ durante la breve e intensa jornada del Violeo lleva al colombiano al éxito final y a la escuadra ‘azul’, a su 10ª victoria de la temporada 2022.

Con el aplomo y autoridad que caracterizan a un corredor y equipo de su categoría, Iván Sosa y Movistar Team sentenciaron este domingo la Vuelta a Asturias 2022 sin dejar margen a sus principales rivales en el Alto del Violeo (2ª categoría), juez de la breve (120 km) e intensa tercera jornada entre Cangas del Narcea y Oviedo.

Con Simon Yates (BEX) adjudicándose sin oposición su segundo parcial, la escuadra dirigida por Chente García Acosta y Pablo Lastras centró sus esfuerzos en la última ascensión en cuidar del colombiano frente a posibles ataques de los hombres de la general. La labor inicial de Rangel y Elosegui y una estupenda aproximación de García Cortina y Rojas a la base del puerto tuvieron continuidad con el trabajo, hasta la misma meta, de Sergio Samitier y Antonio Pedrero, que secaron los movimientos tras el puerto y llevaron el grupo perseguidor unido hasta la céntrica calle Uría.

Gracias a este éxito, el noveno final de Movistar Team en Asturias, Sosa suma su 19º triunfo en profesionales -sexta clasificación general- y eleva a la estructura Abarca a las diez victorias en 2022 (cinco para su equipo masculino), infundiéndoles moral para un Giro de Italia en el que el cundinamarquense tiene centradas buena parte de sus miras para esta campaña.

Yates makes his mark with a spectacular solo victory on the opening stage of Vuelta Asturias – Team BikeExchange Jayco

Simon Yates has started as he means to go on, taking a spectacular solo victory on the opening stage of the three-day Vuelta Asturias. The 29-year-old headed to the race, using it as the final touches to his preparations for the Giro d’Italia starting next week, and today demonstrated top form by riding away from his rivals in the final and to his second victory of the season.
 
Confident in his ability, Team BikeExchange-Jayco allowed an early breakaway group of five riders to gain momentum and ride out to a maximum advantage of just under 10 minutes, during the 170km hilly stage from Oviedo to Pola de Lena.

The squad then took up position at the head of the peloton for the majority of the stage, keeping the breakaway in check, before picking up the pace inside the final 50km and eventually making the catch with 35km to go as the race headed into the more selective, hilly section.
 
Working to neutralise any further breakaway attempts, the Australian outfit stayed attentive while also keeping team leader Yates well protected. Damien Howson then made a tactful acceleration at the base of the final climb and opened up a gap with Ivan Sosa which set up Yates perfectly, putting pressure on the remains of the peloton and allowing the Brit to launch his damaging attack around one kilometre from the summit of the final climb. 
 
Yates successfully powered away from his opponents and maintained his advantage on the predominantly flat run-in to the finish line, to take the win by 14 seconds, and in doing so, took the overall lead of the race.
 
Simon Yates – 1st place:
“First of all, I have to thank all of my teammates for the great work they have done all day long. In the finale, we kept the pace high to avoid some attacks and be in the top positions at the start of the last climb. Damien Howson made a move, got a gap and then I attacked over the top. 

The sensations are good, and the legs responded very well. Tomorrow is the Queen stage, and it would be nice to be able to win again, also because my goal remains to win the overall.”

Matt White – Head Sport Director:
“It took 20 or 30km for the breakaway to get away, then we took control for most of the stage. When we got to the more selective part of the race, the last 35km, Movistar pushed the pace and then we carried it on especially with Callum Scotson. Callum did an incredible 15km and by the time he finished, the bunch was only around 15 or 20 riders left on the penultimate climb. 

Then going into the bottom of the last climb, Damien Howson attacked so that allowed Simon to come from behind. Damien got out there with Sosa, Simon jumped across to them and then continued again on his own.
 
It was nice work by the team and a nice exhibition by Simon who went only in the last kilometre of the last climb with around 5 or 6km from the finish line. He won solo by 14 seconds which gives us a nice buffer with the bonus seconds going into the next two days.”

Siempre me cuesta el primer día pero seguro que vamos a más en lo que queda de Vuelta a Asturias».

    Yates heads to Vuelta a Asturias hungry for victory as part of his final preparation for the Giro d’Italia – Team BikeExchange Jayco

    Briton Simon Yates will headline a strong Team BikeExchange-Jayco squad, lining-up at tomorrow’s 64th edition of the Tour of Asturias. Coming of the back of an altitude training camp, the 29-year-old is looking to test the legs and fight for the victory in the hilly three-day event with big ambitions to win and eyes on the final short and relentless stage.
     
    Alongside the Team BikeExchange-Jayco leader will be strong climbers Nick Schultz, Damien Howson and Tanel Kangert, with powerful all-rounders Chris Juul-Jensen, Callum Scotson and Lawson Craddock also looking to test their legs in the hills after various training camps.
     
    The first stage between Oviedo and Pola de Lena will consist of 169km, with the novelty of a circuit in the council of Llanera and an ascent to Alto de la Miranda, in addition to the passes through the high of La Gargantada (3rd category), Alto de La Colladona (1st cat), La Cabaña (3rd), Fresneo (3rd cat) and Carabanzo (3rd cat).

    The second stage, starting in Candás, with the Aristébano (2nd cat) and Forcayao (3rd cat) climbs which will serve as an appetiser for the traditional ascent to the top of El Acebo (1st cat), will be followed by a descent to reach the finish line in Cangas del Narcea, after a lengthy 202 kilometres of racing.
     
    The final stage, between Cangas del Narcea and Oviedo, is a short 122-kilometre route which will see the peloton face the Alto del Violeo (2nd category) in the final kilometres.
     
    Team BikeExchange-Jayco Line-Up:
    Lawson Craddock (USA)
    Damien Howson (AUS)
    Chris Juul-Jensen (DEN)
    Tanel Kangert (EST)
    Nick Schultz (AUS)
    Callum Scotson (AUS)
    Simon Yates (GBR)
     
    Simon Yates
    “The Vuelta a Asturias is the last challenge before the start of the Giro in Hungary. Compared to the previous year, I wanted to change my racing calendar, and these three stages will help me refine my preparation.

    A few days ago, we concluded the training camp in Andorra, we worked hard, and I think it went well. In Asturias I’ll have a lot of the teammates who will be with me in the Giro, so it will be a good opportunity to test the legs and tactics.”
     
    Matthew White – Sport Director
    “The plan for us at Vuelta a Asturias is a simple one: it is to win. We are taking the vast majority of our Giro d’Italia team, it’s like a dress rehearsal before our main goal of this Spring. This race is a perfect opportunity for us to get together one last time as a team going through the process of how we race and for example, put Simon in a good position to try to win. 

    Last year we did the same at the Tour of Alps but this season we did things a little bit differently, but we are going to this race and after to the Giro with the same mentality.”
