Joel Díaz and Nil Aguilera, in the fight for a Memorial Chely Álvarez where the climb to Onamio is key

XXIX Memorial Chély Álvarez
Bembibre – Bembibre (86 km)

The climb to Onamio, the high pace with which they tackled its three kilometres and the frenetic approach with which they reached its base and swallowed up the great cover of the day, was fundamental for the resolution of the edition of the Memorial Chely Álvarez de Bembire. There Hugo de la Calle (MMR) and Pablo Lospitao (Electromercantil) went on the attack, who achieved a small advantage over a septet that included Joel Díaz and Nil Aguilera.

Aguilera initially went on the attack and managed to stay ahead, but a mechanical problem with the chain on the downhill ended up slowing him down. The leading pair managed to consolidate and increase that advantage in the later field. De la Calle abandoned his breakaway companion with three kilometres to go, while in the bunch sprint Joel finished fourth and Nil sixth, sixth and eighth in the final classification.

The day was marked by the stoppage caused by the consequences of a big crash that took place within the first seven kilometres of the race, a pile-up that required the intervention of ambulances and which led to the stoppage of the competition until they were reinstated.

Guillermo Gutiérrez, director of EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team: “We finish a very productive weekend for us with the victory of Joan on Saturday and a good group performance on Sunday. Beyond the breakaways, the race has been very grouped. The pace imposed by MMR in the final part of the race was key. We tried to stay ahead and both Joel and Nil fought very well. An important race to continue gaining experience and learning, in short. This does not stop and in a few days we have a very attractive race in Murcia: the Vuelta a las Comarcas”.
