Vuelta a Burgos (finale)

Madrilian takes 7th atop Neila and overall in Burgos, as Movistar Team puts three into best 20: attacking Pedrero finishes 11th today, with Carapaz in 16th

Dani Moreno was again the Movistar Team's top performer at the Lagunas de Neila, second and final mountain-top finish of the 2017 Vuelta a Burgos, which Mikel Landa (SKY) won convincingly.

The Madrilian took 7th in the stage, 37" behind Miguel Ángel López (AST), after setting a progressive pace through the hardest part of the ascent, 3km before the end, with four Blues into the 20-rider lead group: Carapaz, Pedrero, Soler and the veteran Spaniard.

Other than Dani's top-ten -also finishing 7th overall- and the long, early break by José Herrada, caught into the decisive ascent, the telephone squad also shone with Antonio Pedrero, on the attack with 7km remaining and eventually 11th (+1'10"), 15th GC.

Carapaz, in turn, was a respectable 16th on the stage result and closed his race in 21st spot overall.
