Vuelta a Burgos - Race Overview

Colombian climber Esteban Chaves finished in fourth place overall at Vuelta Burgos today after a hard battle up to the summit finish Lagunas de Neila.

Mitchelton-SCOTT riders did everything they could to deliver Chaves fresh and in a good position to try and climb himself up onto the overall podium, but there proved to be one too many accelerations inside the final three kilometers which saw the 30-year-old lose some ground to the leaders and eventually finished in day in eighth place behind countryman Ivan Sosa (Team Ineos).

After five hard days of racing, after a lengthy period away, the Australian outfot walk away from the Spanish tour with a lot of confidence and many promising signs from the riders, with Chaves claiming a solid fourth place in what was his first stage race of the 2020 season with Mitchelton-SCOTT.
