SD Worx remains intractable: Wiebes wins in his debut in Burgos

Of the top five riders in the World Tour ranking in terms of points, four of them are from the SD Worx team. That says a lot about the Dutch squad, currently the strongest in the peloton. In said ranking, Demi Vollering occupies the first position, Lotte Kopecky the second, Marlen Reusser third and Lorena Wiebes, fifth. The latter was the one that prevailed this Thursday in the opening stage of the Vuelta a Burgos after being the strongest in the sprint. The European champion raised her arms in Medina de Pomar after 115 km starting in Quintanaortuño. Alba Teruel, from Laboral Kutxa and who continues to rub shoulders with the World Tour was sixth, while Drummond’s tenth place with Farto and after his complicated exit from the Zaaf was also notorious.

In the final part, Movistar was active with a combative Alicia González, who tried it alone in the final stretch. Later, her partner Aude Biannic did the same. It should be remembered that Van Vleuten, the brand new winner of La Vuelta a España against Vollering, is not in Burgos. In fact, the Dutch will no longer run, in principle, in Spain. She will retire at the end of this campaign and, in the aforementioned ranking at the beginning of the chronicle, she occupies the fourth position, the only non-SD Worx in the top five. There are three stages left in the Vuelta a Burgos, whose general will be decided on Sunday in the Lagunas de Neila. Both Friday and Saturday are good options to repeat volatas. There are 22 teams present in the race.
