The UCI Río Miera-Cantabria Deporte team has concluded its participation in the Vuelta a Andalucía Women with good feelings. After disputing three days with winding routes at a very high pace, our runners have stood up to very important rivals.
On Tuesday they ran 105 kilometres between Salobreña and Arenas, on Wednesday 119 between Malaga and Mijas and on Thursday, as the culmination of the test, they had to do 140 kilometres between Fuengirola and Castellar de la Frontera. Precisely in this last stage Carolina Esteban entered a second group after the ten breakaways among which were the favourites, concluding in eighteenth position. This final effort served him to occupy the 21st position in a general tie where in just five seconds there were six cyclists between the 16th and 21st positions.
In addition, corroborating her great performance, Carolina was the third Spanish runner in the general classification.
Aida Nuño, Sports Director, was happy “because our runners have emptied themselves at each stage. It hasn’t been easy because from the top a high pace has always been set that sometimes hasn’t been easy to follow. Carol with a great Top 25 finish has rounded off the work of her colleagues. We started this important month of May well and we want to continue along the same lines in the following races”.
