Demi Vollering raises both arms in victory as she wins a stage of Vuelta a Burgos

Burgos Feminas stage 2 report: Vollering wins (again) atop Alto de Rosales

The Dutchwoman was once again the strongest rider on a climb and claimed another overall jersey with two stages remaining.

The second stage of Vuelta a Burgos finished atop a climb so naturally it was SD Worx-Protime’s Demi Vollering who walked away from the day victorious. Évita Muzic of FDJ-Suez and Karlijn Swinkels (UAE Team ADQ) were the two to follow the Dutch champion; they finished second and third on the stage respectively. Vollering also claimed the overall lead ahead of the third stage, eight seconds up on Muzic and 11 seconds on Swinkels.

What’s next?

From the Wheel Talk Newsletter:

The third stage is the only “flat” day of the race; with no categorized climbs and only a few small uncategorized pops, there is very little for the general classification riders on Saturday. Instead, it will be a day for the sprinters, or perhaps a breakaway.

Unlike at La Vuelta, there is very little chance of crosswinds impacting the “flat” stage. I say “flat” because there are still some small uncategorized climbs in the second half of the race, the longest one is still only 2 km long, 2% average with a max of 7%.
