Vuelta Ciclista a Zamora
From 12 to 16 July

Edoardo Alleva, Gabriele Bessega, Tommaso Bessega, Alex García, Andrea Montoli and Pablo Uría form the ‘six’ with which the EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team u23 travels to Zamora to face a new edition of his famous and disputed Vuelta Ciclista a Zamora. One of the great stage tours of the calendar, undoubtedly, given the work and the path of the team headed by Manuel Campesino.

After the experience of 2022, with six stages and an international tour in neighbouring Portugal, the Zamora round returns to its more traditional format of five stages which in 2023, however, present the great novelty of the return of a major stage finish. The last edition left a great impression on the U23 structure of the Contador Foundation, with double partial victory, nice group performance, provisional leadership of Javi Serrano and fight to the end for a final overall where Serrano finished third.

It will happen in the queen stage, on Saturday 15, a stage more queen if possible by the hardening of its route: six mountain passes (double passage through the chained Ladiairo and Marabón, usual summits in the race) before the final ascent to the Parque Eólico de Lubián, almost six kilometres at an average close to 10%. This stage is set to mark the evolution of a race that, nevertheless, presents terrain in the previous days for surprises, scares and ambushes.

Pablo Uría, on his return to competition: “I feel good training, let’s see how it goes in the race, before I also felt good while working at home. Now I’m more confident and I’m looking forward to doing well, we’re going to do our best. The fourth stage is very hard, with a high finish and several climbs”.
