The U23 outlines its new calendar: debut in Zamora and intense quarter
Initially planned for July 5 in the Loinatz Proba of Beasain, the fixing by the Basque Government of the official return of the cycling competitions from the 26th of that month has finally converted the great week of cycling promoted from the province of Zamora in the moment of the competitive return of the Kometa-Xstra Cycling Team u23.
The 37th edition of the Vuelta Ciclista a Zamora, between 14 and 17 July, and the Zamora City Council Trophy, 18 July, and the San José Trophy, 19 July, have made up seven days of high competition that are expected with a mixture of expectation, enthusiasm and desire. The Zamoran stage race will be the first race faced by the riders of the Alberto Contador Foundation’s amateur team since the Guerrita Trophy.
On the other hand, the Loinaz Proba, now set for Sunday 26, and the Vuelta a Ávila, that same weekend, will be the next commitments for the structure directed by Rafa Díaz Justo.
In August the priority objectives will be the first two races of the Spanish Cup, both the Memorial Ángel Lozano in Valladolid (August 9) and the Gran Premio Primavera de Ontur (August 16), and the Spanish Championships that will take place in the province of Jaén on two very hard circuits both in the time trial (with a final in Cazorla) and in the road race (a circuit between Úbeda and Baeza).
A new edition of the Vuelta Ciclista a Cantabria is planned for September, between the 3rd and the 5th, in which the Kometa-Xstra Cycling Team will be present. If it is possible, the structure directed by Rafa Díaz Justo would also like to take part in the Vuelta Ciclista a Salamanca, set between the 7th and 10th of September, although the Helmsman round overlaps with the Memorial Momparler (8th September), where the team will certainly be competing.
The Vuelta a la Provincia de Valencia, between 10 and 13 September, is another fixed date on the new Kometa-Xstra Cycling Team calendar. The Clasica de Pascua (September 16), the Santikutz Klasika (September 27) and the Clasica de Torredonjimeno (October 4), the three punctual ones for the Spanish Cup, will be the following stops of a team that is also very pending to the evolutions of the French Ronde de l’Isard, foreseen between Thursday 17 and Sunday 20 of this month.
The Aiztondo Klasika and the Memorial Valenciaga, which will take place on the weekend of 10 and 11 October, and the Gran Premio Macario, to be held on 18 October, will be the last competitive fixtures of this unusual year, 2020.
