Francesc Bennassar and Pedro Beneit, among the first ten of a first massive arrival where Juan Ayuso is in charge
XXVII Vuelta a Talavera
Stage 1: Casar de Talavera – Talavera la Nueva (93 km)
Juan Ayuso (Bathco, Alicante) imposed his speed lead in the numerous and crowded sprint that fought this Thursday for the victory in this first stage of the Vuelta Ciclista a Talavera. A first fraction in which the dynamic of the bunch prevailed without any breakaway, nor many attempts in those companies, managed to open up a substantial gap.
With the compact group for a good part of the day, the falls appeared and in some of them some rider of the junior team of the Foundation was involved. Such was the case of an Alejandro Luna who had to row for many kilometres again to get back into the discipline of the big group. Luna, halfway through the race, went to the ground and as a consequence of the blow he suffered multiple abrasions and even needed some stitches on his chin. The Spaniard never gave up in his efforts to return to the platoon, something he achieved.
In the last 500 meters, in the last curve, a new fall that this time affected, without great consequences, Miguel Ramos from Madrid. And in the volata, a very crowded sprint where Juan Ayuso was the fastest, Francesc Bennassar again showed his top speed by signing a fourth final place. Seventh, Pedro Beneit from Alicante.
