EsCiclismo.com · Road Competition · 06/06/2021

The final day of the Volta a Castell did not leave any changes in the final general classification, which was taken by Igor Arrieta (Lizarte), while David Martn (Eolo-Kometa) achieved the victory in sprint after overcoming the Alto del Desierto de Las Palmas.

Nice closing of the competition, with a stage that was played at a high pace. Not surprisingly, the various escape attempts were neutralized by continuous counterattacks. At kilometer 18, more than 20 cyclists tried to open differences, but the Lizarte Team did not leave them any margin.

It was already at kilometer 33 when Vadic (Vendee U) and Muoz (MP Group), who came from behind, managed to make up the break of the day. The difference reached 2 and a half minutes, with an average of 41.9 km / h for them.

The control of the Lizarte Team from behind and the movement of Kogut (Israel) were filing the advantage, which was finally neutralized already in the streets of Benicassim. The highlight of the day remained and the favorite teams picked up the pace before the Alto del Desierto de las Palmas.

The one who unleashed the hostilities in this ascent was Iigo Gonzlez (Electro Hiper Europa), who achieved a handful of seconds on the hardest ramps although he was swallowed up by 27 cyclists who made up the main peloton. Arrieta (Lizarte) and Bonneu (Basso) crowned in the lead, but without differences.

After the rapid descent, the small squad recovered and the Eolo-Kometa and the Gomur team prepared to arrive at the sprint. Fulfilling the forecasts, David Martin raised his arms in front of Sergio Trueba (Gomur) and Louis David Sutton (Netllar AL).

The final general did not undergo changes in the podium, with Igor Arrieta as the final winner ahead of Bonneu and Ivn Cobo (Lizarte). In the team general, the Belgian Basso Team won, while Arrieta ensured the regularity and best first-year cyclist, Riera the flying goals, Bonneu the mountain, Forques (Essax) the best Valencian general and Ario (Electro Hiper Europe) as the best Castellón.

David Martn explains that “I came with the intention of winning this fourth stage. It suited me well for my characteristics. Thanks to the work of my team I have been able to achieve it. I dedicate it to my girlfriend and the people who support me constantly. We must continue working and showing a good level, to make the leap to professionalism in the future. My name comes out in qualifying, but I want to thank the whole team for the effort they have made. “

Igor Arrieta, for his part, claims to have found himself “very well and I have had the support of the team, which has been key. It is the first round of the year, for me the first U-23 season and I am getting great results. It was difficult when Bonneu started yesterday, but we were able to solve it. I want to dedicate the victory to my family and my teammates. “

Finally, Jos Cabedo explains that “it has been a complicated year, with uncertainty, but the race ends and we are satisfied with a job well done. Volunteers, sponsors, teams, all have collaborated to make the test go ahead. It is a pride that the race has winners of such high level and I want to congratulate the cyclists for having given a nice show “.
