Long Saturday in the Principality of Asturias for the youth cycling that competes these days in the Challenge Montaña Central. In the morning, with a team time trial. In the afternoon, with an online stage in which they had to climb the Faya de los Lobos, the most important mountain pass of this edition.

The Cantabrian rider David Puente confirmed his great form by winning in the streets of Pola de Laviana. Puente, a great downhill runner, was the fastest in the small leading group that reached the last straight. A small group that also included Álex García, sixth at the finish, and Nil Aguilera, eighth.

In the morning the youth structure of the Contador Foundation signed the third best time in the team time trial that, over 10 kilometres, linked Moreda and Cabañaquinta. The boys in blue were 14 seconds behind the 13’40” set by the MMR Academy.

Puente will face Sunday in the third position of a provisional general classification, 32 seconds behind the yellow, which is still led by Asturian Hugo de la Calle with 31 seconds over his teammate in the MMR Rafael Martínez. Álex García and Nil Aguilera are fifth and sixth in the general classification, 36 and 38 seconds behind respectively.
