Évita Muzic (FDJ-SUEZ) is making a strong bid to establish herself as the main rival for Demi Vollering (SD Worx-Protime). After finishing runner-up in the Vuelta Femenina and beating the Dutchwoman on a summit finish, Muzic took second on stage 2 of the Vuelta a Burgos Féminas, this time behind Vollering on the hilltop finish at the Alto de Rosales.

Muzic was not at the front of the peloton going into the 3.8-kilometre climb but was brought into position by Jade Wiel and then Léa Curinier set the pace. She was just not able to follow Vollering’s stage-winning attack.
