Richi defended his lead successfully on stage 3 to take the GC overall! It was a very dominant showing from Lizarte in the race, doing a spectacular 1-2-3 with Samitier, Rojo and Jurado in stage 1, then the HTF/MTF being won by Carapaz. The final stage was 141km from Sangüesa to Pamplona and while a few people attacked on the Puerto del Perdón around 15km from the line, Lizarte managed everything and successfully defended Carapaz' lead.

He'll get his first shot at the big guns very soon. Carapaz has been selected to ride the road race of the Olympics!

Well, there goes Ryo's prediction of an easy win for Byron Guama soloing in ahead of Jaime Castañeda and Arnold Alcolea.

AFAIK, Guama is the equatorian for Rio, Carapaz is listed as a replacement.

I think the news were not placed here, but Carapaz is a Movistar trainee this year. Honestly, I don't recall Abarca with a trainee in any of the most recent seasons.

A few months ago the head of Ecuadorian cycling had send a letter to either IOC or UCI (can't remember exactly), confirming Carapaz for the RR. Guess it was just a pre-selection or something afterall.

That said, he'll get his shot at the big guys soon with his stagiaire contract with Movistar. Look for him to tear it up in Burgos or whatever race they select him for.

Su debut con los colores telefónicos se producirá en el Tour de l’Ain (Francia), del 10 al 13 de agosto.


From the official Movistar website.

Richi will start his season in Mallorca, probably followed by Andalucia. His big dream is winning the Giro some day.

Good showing today... Albeit this was a very easy MTF, it was nice to see him in the front on the decisive moments... Wasn't expecting that in his first WT ride...

Let's see what he can do on the 5th stage...

Yes, my mistake, Strade Bianche doesn't have that WT feeling for me yet. :o

What a week for him. He rode so good on Gavarnie-Gèdre, but Thursday bonus seconds were his downfall. Making a nice case for himself to earn a Vuelta spot. Hope he gets another chance to lead the team in a race like Burgos.
