Joao Almeida (UAE Team) was the best climber of the day and the winner of the last stage, which defined Pavel Sivakov as the champion of the Vuelta a Burgos. The day had a fraction of 170 kilometers, starting in the town of Lermas and ending high up in the Lagunas de Neila.

The breakaway of the day was made up of three riders: Carlos Canal (Euskaltel – Euskadi), Jetse Bol (Burgos-BH) and Marco Frigo (Israel Premier Techo), who animated a good part of the day since the favorites would be reserved for final ascent.

At 18 kilometers from the finish, the harmony of the breakaway would be broken as Carlos Canal would try to set off again alone. While the peloton would arrive at the base of the port with a delay of one and a half minutes thanks to the pace imposed by Ineos.

Jetse Bol will be the first to be neutralized and Frigo relieves Canal in the lead. In the main group, Astana did the selection work, then Juan Pedro López (Trek Segafredo) with Chris Harper (Jumbo-Visma) made the first offensive move, but only the “Aussie” could hold on until the last 3 kilometers. The next acceleration was that of Miguel Angel López, but the “ladybug” could not open the gap against Carlos Rodríguez (Ineos) whose step cut the peloton into several pieces and found himself alone with his leader Pavel Sivakov and the Colombian from Astana.

In the final kilometer, Joao Almeida came from behind to overtake the leading group, rolling Miguel Angel López. Already at the finish line, the Portuguese was faster and raised his arms to Lagunas de Neila. For his part, the French Pavel Sivakov arrived in 3rd position to be crowned champion of the Spanish competition. The performance of “Superman” served to register the third place of the podium, while Santiago Buitrago (Bahrain-Victorious) fell to eighth place, consecrated as the best Latin American of the day.
