Good team performance in Burgos

After a good start in the Vuelta a Burgos Feminas Liv Racing TeqFind learned a lot in the other stages.

Tereza Neumanova took her first top-10 result in the opening stage of the Spanish stage race. In the second stage the bunch was split into echelons right after the start. Liv Racing TeqFind missed the first group, but worked hard to close the gap. One day later it was up to the sprinters again, although an escape group pushed the peloton to the limit and was reeled in the final metres. Tereza Neumanova was again there to do the sprint, but after a manoeuvre of a rider she lost the chance for a good result.

The final stage brought the riders to the Lagunas de Neila, a climb of 11,7 kilometres with an average of 6,3%. Liv Racing TeqFind worked hard in order to bring Marta Jaskulska into a good position for the final climb. The Polish rider suffered on the hard climb and choose her own tempo to reach the summit.

Sports director Giorgia Bronzini was satisfied after a race wherein the team learned a lot. “The first day we started really well with Tereza. On the second day we missed the first echelon, which was not the way we liked it to be. Still the team worked hard to close the gap, which was a good sign. On the third day it was up to SD Worx to get the escapees back. That happened in the final kilometre. Tereza was well positioned in the last metres, but her wheel was touched by another rider. She lost some speed and positions, which cost her a nice result in the end. The final day was hard with the climb at the end. We tried to set up Marta for that climb, but she had a hard day. Valerie stayed with her to support her and they drove on in their own tempo. In general I am satisfied about how we raced these days. We have learned a lot in every stage.”
