V Vuelta a las Comarcas Región de Murcia
Stage 2 (a): Abanilla-Abanilla (66,4 km)
Stage 2 (b): Molina de Segura – Molina de Segura (3 km CRI)

Once common even in the great stage races of the professionalism (regulated later from a normative prism), the double sectors maintain a certain iron health in the stage races of inferior and formative categories in which both the logistics and the suitability of approaching different disciplines resort to the formula in a habitual way.

In the Vuelta a las Comarcas this Saturday was a day of double sector, one morning in line and another one in the afternoon against the clock, and in both the triumph went to the Russian Savelli Laptev (Team Vino) and with the British Oliver Peace (Fensham Howes Mas Design) reinforcing his leadership. Murcia’s César Pérez finished fourth in Albanilla. Barcelona’s Nil Aguilera set the fifth best final time in the afternoon time trial.

In the morning, a not very long stage in terms of mileage, but with its ‘chicha’ in the final part due to the proximity to the arrival of the Alto de la Cola del Caballo. Not a hard mountain pass, but a sufficiently interesting orographic difficulty to keep the race moving and, if necessary, to break away. Laptev moved there, where he arrived after an intense journey with a lot of movement, a journey in which Pedro García was involved in a fall and in which Balint Feldhoffer had to change bikes.

In the end, the Russian cyclist won with a minimal advantage, just two seconds. César Pérez, meanwhile, finished fourth in this first fraction in which the leader Peace, tenth, saved his first place. Álex García (19th), Lucas Guillermo (23rd) and Nil Aguilera (38th) were the next EOLO-KOMETA riders to finish.

For the afternoon, a very short time trial in the streets of Molina de Segura; a time trial with an uphill profile in which the Russian Laptev showed again his riding qualities to stop the clock in 05:02.57, two seconds better than the leader Peace.

Nil Aguilera, for his part, put in a great performance and set the fifth best final time (05:06.99). Hungary’s Balint Feldhoffer, meanwhile, set the 14th best time of the race (05:23.23), while César Pérez finished 22nd with a time of 05:29.12.

After the time trial, with a view to the last stage, the team is not represented in the top ten of the provisional general standings. Aguilera is the best placed, 11th, 1’04” behind the leader; César Pérez is 12th, 1’05” behind; and Álex García is 15th, 1’07” behind.
