Stage one of the Vuelta Feminina a El Salvador was changed due to a volcano eruption in Santa Ana, west of San Salvador, the race finish of the day. The Ilamatepec volcano, also known as Santa Ana, exploded to spit heavy rocks from its crater on Saturday morning, and authorities evacuated hundreds of people living on its slopes. However, according to Cyclingnews' sources, all riders and staff are safe.

The Ilamatepec, the largest of the country's 23 volcanoes, has been increasingly active since July 2004 but has not erupted since 1904.
