Alejandro Ropero, fourth in the finish to Boiro
XVII Volta a Galicia
Stage 3: Boiro-Boiro (150 km)
The Cantabrian Sergio Vega (Froiz) remains in front of the general of the Volta a Galicia after a third stage in which the Murcia Fran García Rus (GS Sport) scored a new partial success this year and where the Granada Alejandro Ropero, fourth, was the best classified runner of the Polartec-Kometa.
In his first measures, a script similar to the one of the previous day the lived this Saturday in the Galician round. A lot of fight after an escape where sixteen runners end up joining among which is, for the second day giving presence to Polartec-Kometa, the Balearic Joan Martí Bennassar.
However, this escape would end up being dismembered later, Jesus Angel Nanclares (Aluminos Cortizo) staying in the lead, with several runners interspersed between him and a platoon that rolls between a minute and a half and the two of delay. Ten would be hunted by a trio, Ruiz de Larrinaga, Sergio Gil and Martí Márquez, and García de Mateos would try to stand out later, without success.
Five kilometres from the end, the head of the race would be grouped together. In a steep slope of great hardness in the vicinity of the finish line, the peloton would be selected a lot, with the advantage of the Madrid formation José Antonio García being left off the hook. And in the sprint, Rus’ new success; however with some suspense for Antonio Angulo’s claim, which was considered closed.
This Sunday concludes the Vuelta a Galicia with a 145.5 km stage with start and finish in Monforte in which Alejandro Ropero, eighth at 16 seconds, will start as the Polartec-Kometa classified in a general where Carlos García is tenth.
