Recital by Simon Yates in Oviedo and Sosa, Prince of Asturias

ANDhe Giro d’Italia will have a serious candidate at Simon Yates. The Briton was several weeks ago in terms of records and qualities, but his physical form will be a 10 before the first ‘Grand Tour’ of the season. He traveled to Asturias having his preparation between eyebrows and eyebrows, and came out of the ‘Vueltina’ with two wins, in Lena and Oviedo. And with just him holly blotthat seen what is seen seems to be the fruit of a day.

Simon Yates gave an exhibition on the short and explosive final day of the Vuelta a Asturias in Oviedo. He moved into the hot spot, Alto del Violeo. And from then on it was a solo recital. Enough to raise your arms in the capital’s Ura Street and watch what starts in a week in Budapest. As happened in the last stage of the Paris-Nice in which he exhibited on the way to the Paseo de los Ingleses, Yates set an impossible pace for the rest. And he signed a victory that had not been seen like this in the capital of the Principality for a long time.

The British only left with that objective after his disaster in Cangas del Narcea. And the best in the queen stage did not disappoint, because the general classification It was taken by Ivn Ramiro Sosa, who made good the 14 seconds with which he left the banks of the Narcea. He did not suffer too much, as Samitier seconded him to perfection in the Violeo and they grabbed the brave Igor Arrieta.

The dangerous descent of Violeo did open gaps, but Movistar closed them and prevented Fortunato, the best drop in the general classification, from making his way and ‘stealing’ the leader’s blue. They arrived in Oviedo together and the coffee grower signs up a general of ‘mythical square’ for national cycling. On the podium, Fortunato and Edet. The Prince of Asturias is Sosa.

Sosa, along with the rest of the group, yielded about 35″ with Simon Yates, who did not take the general but proved to be the best in the Asturian round. And they already know that whoever does well in the Vuelta a Asturias is usually important in the Giro. Watch out for the British accent.
