A monumental Tour

Burgos is already a classic of Spanish cycling. And also international. The Vuelta a Burgos is a must in summer, with the Neila Lagunas as the traditional August climb, always a good test to measure the temperature of a handful of climbers for the Vuelta a España. Neila has now been joined by Picón Blanco, who has not yet acquired the same name, but will manage to do so, especially when he appears next Monday in society in the national round. Burgos, with its spirited Provincial Council, always focused on sports, made the leap in prestige last year, when it became the first stage race that managed to get ahead in the middle of a pandemic, with strict safety protocols that were an example for laps posterior

Burgos has taken another stride in the present 2021 with the celebration of the start of the Vuelta a España, coinciding with the VIII Centenary of the Cathedral, that majestic construction that will drive tomorrow's time trial. It will be three consecutive days with the peloton rolling through the province, with two goals in the capital, which will place the Castilian epicenter in the world. The cyclists marched yesterday in the Paseo Sierra de Atapuerca, in front of the Museum of Human Evolution, other locations in Burgos with universal projection. There they were presented Primoz Roglic, who aspires to his third consecutive victory; the powerful Ineos with Egan Bernal, who aims to complete the Triple Crown, and with two recent Olympic champions in Tokyo, Richard Carapaz and newcomer Thomas Pidcock; the host Movistar, who seeks to remake the Tour with Superman López, Enric Mas and the incombustible Alejandro Valverde; as well as Mikel Landa, Hugh Carthy, Alexander Vlasov… A brilliant participation that does not miss Tadej Pogacar. A monumental Tour.
