Bernal says goodbye to the general before the triumph of Planckaert

The Colombian fell with Adam Yates 20 km from the finish line at Alto del Castillo, where the Belgian beat Gonzalo Serrano in an agonizing finish.

In an agonizing end to the climb to Alto del Castillo, with Edward Planckaert and Gonzalo Serrano shoulder to shoulder in the last meters, the Belgian debuted his professional record in the opening stage of the Vuelta a Burgos. Serrano arrived broken and did everything possible to prevent being overtaken by Planckaert, 26, in his first season with Alpecin after four at Sport Vlaanderen-Baloise. The Movistar from Madrid surely got rid of the penalty for the victory of his rival. Among the favorites, Romain Bardet entered at three seconds and Mikel Landa, little by little with better feelings after recovering from his Giro injury, at nine. Aru and Simon Yates did it at 13 ”, and Bernal lost his options due to a fall.

While Sivakov and Narváez were in the lead (they were hunted four km from the finish line along with the rest of the adventurers of the day), a montonera caught the other half of the Ineos 20 km from the end, with Bernal, Adam Yates, Rodríguez and Martínez affected . The four were KO to fight in Alto del Castillo and for the general classification, and we will see that the extent of their ailments does not go beyond… because the Vuelta a España will begin on August 14th. This Tuesday, probable resolution to the sprint in Briviesca.
