Lotto approaches Movistar in battle to keep his place on the World Tour

With just over a week to go before the start of the Vuelta, each race will be played to the death to score points and secure the top category

More than a week before the start of the Vuelta a España in Utrecht [comienza el viernes de la semana que viene], the cycling calendar is full of races and teams, such as the Movistar Team and Lotto, looking for points to maintain their place in the World Tour. Every test is contested to the death. Such as the Franco-Belgian Circuit, where Kristoff won and the Lotto placed three riders among the best: Campenaerts (third), De Byst (fourth) and De Lie (sixth). They added 200 points and are almost 400 from Movistar, marking the relegation line. There will be fighting until the end of the campaign.

Movistar, the team of Alejandro Valverde from Murcia, played on another stage, the Tour de l’Ain. There his trick is the Colombian Iván Ramiro Sosa. He finished sixth in the second stage, beating Guillaume Martin, whose attack reached the target one and a half kilometers from the finish of Lagnieu and managed to get enough meters to beat the other five best riders of the day by two seconds, Mattias Jensen, Molard, Vansevenant, Hanninen and Sosa.

Martin, who had to withdraw from the Tour de France due to coronavirus infection, is in the lead, with 6 seconds on the young Dane Jensen and 8 on Molard. Vansevenant, Sosa and Hanninen are on 12.

The Tour de l’Ain concludes today with a short stage of only 130 kilometers full of mountains. Colombian Iván Ramiro Sosa has the ideal terrain to please the Movistar Team. The Spanish team needs it because the Belgian Lotto does not stop pressing.
