Caja Rural Seguros RGA continues to be sweet: Prades takes the overall in Alentejo

El spanish Eduard Prades I conquered this Sunday the Return to Alentejo, whose 41st edition was marked by the dominance of his team’s runners, the Rural Fund/RGA Insurance, which won the Portuguese test for the third consecutive year. Prades finished the fifth and final stage in sixth position, which allowed him to keep the yellow jersey he won on Saturday and triumph in the Alentejo event, a southern Portuguese region bordering Extremadura and Andaluca (Spain).

The Catalan – who finished with a time of 20 hours and 23 minutes – succeeds his teammate, the Venezuelan Orluis Aular, winner of the last two editions, on the throne. In second place overall, with 1 second more, was the Venezuelan Francisco Joel Peuela (Rdio Popular/Paredes/Boavista, who finished fifth in the stage), while third was the Puerto Rican Abner Gonzlez (Efapel Cycling and 29th of the day), 14 seconds away. The last stage was won by another Caja Rural runner, the Portuguese Iuri Leito, who covered the 187.9 kilometers between the towns of Nisa and Vora in 4 hours, 15 minutes and 27 seconds.

It was not enough to have a good place in the general classification, but it was enough to win the green jersey (sprinters). The American Scott McGill (Project Echelon Racing) and the Portuguese Lus Mendona (Sabgal/Anicolor) finished the day second and third respectively. It was also a successful Vuelta al Alentejo for the Uruguayan Guillermo Thomas Silva (Caja Rural).

The winner of the first stage finished 13th this Sunday and concluded the test in fifth position. Meanwhile, the revelation of this 41st edition was the young Catalan Sergi Darder, from Illes Balears Arabay Cycling, who closed the day in fourth position and was tenth overall in the competition, which earned him the white jersey (under-23). .
