47th Vuelta Ciclista a Ávila: from 7 to 9 July.

In the U23 category, a very tough final stage of the Vuelta a Ávila, not very long in terms of mileage, but with many metres of elevation gain. Four big mountain passes of the Sistema Central and a very demanding approach to the finish line, without respite and in constant ascent, provided a great sporting spectacle that resulted in a second place both in the stage and in the final overall for the Italian Andrea Montoli. The last stage of the Avila round had again a great work of the EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team during the whole day.
