Vuelta a Burgos Féminas: Demi Vollering smashes stage 2 uphill finish to take race lead

Demi Vollering (SD Worx-Protime) won stage 2 of the Vuelta a Burgos Féminas, attacking from a reduced peloton on the final kilometre of the 3.8-kilometre climb to the Alto de Rosales.

Karlijn Swinkels (UAE Team ADQ) and Évita Muzic (FDJ-SUEZ) tried to follow the Dutch champion but could not hold her wheel, and Vollering opened a gap of four seconds to runner-up Muzic and nine seconds to third-placed Swinkels.

With the bonus seconds, Vollering now leads the GC by eight seconds to Muzic and 11 seconds to Swinkels.
