Vuelta a Burgos (2.HC) i.imgur.com/zMBJxFz.png
Stage 4/5, 156.2 kms
i.imgur.com/NttOKNN.png


Another typical flat stage with a short uphill finish. Last chance for the puncheurs and sprinters, as tomorrow's outcome is very likely to be decisive for the overall standings.

Five riders were given a little playing time in front of the peloton. With no KoM points up for grabs along the route, they could only hope their move would make it to the line.

It didn't. Long before the bumpy finish, which was a climb to the ancient Roman city of Clunia, the group was caught. At the foot of said climb, our men sat too far back already. They could only watch how points leader Carlos Verona launched from the very foot.

The Spaniard, who we managed to sign for next season, is just on fire. Nobody came even close to catching up again. He's also still got a shot at winning the race tomorrow. So do we with Izagirre who continues to sit in GC 3rd, just a few seconds from the current leader Noria.

From a four-man breakaway with Seba Henao, BMC's Nathan Brown went on to challenge for the stage win. It must have been a major bummer for him to be passed by GC 2nd Rob Power with just tens of meters to go. The white jersey gained enough time on his fellow contenders to move into the yellow jersey ahead of the conclusive time trial.

Guerreiro had to let go near the end, which caused him to lose any hope of making the GC top 10. The time trial could let us learn if his form has gotten any better of the last week.

Fingers crossed for Ion in Burgos! Pity that Henao couldn't stay with the other escapees in Poland, but good on Ruben, eventhough his overall place didn't improve, maybe his confidence did a little Wink (but did you post that stage twice on purpose?).

Very much looking forward to that Burgos queen stage indeed. Ruben's becoming better, I hope this won't beat him down as it's his penultimate race ahead of his Vuelta captain role. (Didn't post the stage twice on purpose though, I messed up my stage reports, will edit stage 6 into the previous post later on Wink ).

Vuelta a Burgos (2.HC) i.imgur.com/xFpGiMO.png
Stage 5/5, 145.6 kms
i.imgur.com/9vqvBKL.png


Time for the annual Lagunas de Neila queen stage in Burgos. The still small time gaps at the very top could make for a very interesting conclusion of this year's edition.

i.imgur.com/a23Sewz.png


Eder Chávarri, who's been unlucky in terms of the GC, joined the big BOTD of twelve. Jarlinson Pantano was his best-known companion.

i.imgur.com/ISo7oZz.png


It wasn't until Pasil de Rozavientos, the first cat.1 climb, that Eder came to the fore. By then the group was down to four men, with Parrinello about to lose contact as well.

i.imgur.com/6m8TMlk.png


Chávarri, Pantano, Le Gac had their lead at 3'40" at the foot of the final climb. They were looking good for the stage win.

i.imgur.com/BgeZfq3.png
i.imgur.com/H4i83wR.png


Le Gac had to let go early on. Past the steepest slopes, Pantano cracked too. Eder was very close to another one of his signature breakaway wins.

Victor Lafay attacked from a select GC group, where Ion Izagirre overcame a short slump as he kept sitting at the very back. Vandenborre was in the mix too and so were race leader Noria and Verona.

i.imgur.com/dU8Cpfq.png


Chávarri resisted the comeback of a raging Lafay, and won the stage by just 16". He both breached the GC top 10 and won the mountain jersey.

i.imgur.com/oujR2UD.png


A sharp final sprint and Vandenborre sitting up made Izagirre gain time on Noria and pass him in the overall standings. Sadly, Lafay's gap was so big he'd pass everyone to win the 2020 Vuelta a Burgos by 20 seconds.

Funny to see Lafay so strong. I have him with Cofidis and he's very, very far away from performances like that Grin but I wouldn't mind him getting there.

Unfortunate for Ion that he missed the overall win, but all things considered a very good race for the team, I'd say. Two stage wins, mountain jersey, 2nd and 7th overall - pretty nice!

A very good race all in all, yet once again we struggle to actually bag a GC win.

As for Lafay, a very deserved overall win if you put almost 2' into the others. It's this kind of performances Deceuninck have signed him for. Fingers crossed he will perform like this for you in the future. Smile

The list of breakaway wins keeps getting longer. Tour of Austria, Volta a Portugal and Ruta del Sol at first, two Vuelta stages, two TDF stages and now a Burgos stage... Not quite like Thomas De Gendt yet, but he might be getting there. Pfft

And a loss is always (a little) easier to swallow when the opponent is just stronger too. Smile

As we hadn't been in the mix on practically every stage, expectations weren't too high for this conclusive time trial in and around Krakow.

i.imgur.com/QXJH8jO.png


Costa Rican champion Cerezo clearly felt the fatigue after the tough previous stages that didn't suit him at all. He couldn't maintain his usual pace and as other riders started to cross the line, he kept dropping on the timetable to an eventual 26th place.

Guerreiro had a very unfortunate race with a modest form to start in the first place and a crash later. His performance today though was encouraging, as he only narrowly missed the day's top 10.

Adam Yates beat yellow jersey Rob Power by 17", which wasn't good enough to win the race. It's Rob Power's biggest overall win so far.
