Another national title for Movistar Team
Despite the high level shown by their rivals in Cocentaina, Movistar Team have revalidated the title of Alejandro Valverde won last year in Cáceres; this time with José Joaquín Rojas. Bala mate has shown an excellent form, as targeted in the recent Route du Sud.
Rojas attacked from the peloton two laps before the finish to integrate a break of seven riders in which was the Movistar Rubén Fernandez. His insistence, with hard and powerful jumps, leave him in first position with only 5 km ahead, to celebrate in this way his second national championship.
Alejandro Valverde led the chasing pack signing a fourth that confirms its optimum form one week before the start of the Tour de France, his second Grand Tour of the season after the third place achieved last May in the Giro d’Italia.
