I hope for a Diego Camargo or Luis Fernando Jimenez show tomorrow on Romeral.
Well, I got what I wished for. It was almost too much really.

Jiménez annihilated everybody. A true beast. --- In all the recent chequeos in Boyaca he has crushed the competition. He also won the TT around Samacá (ok it finished with the last 5ks on Alto de La Cumbre) but "rolling" well for his diminutive size.

Osorio also very, very strong. Could definitely become a good rider!

The Vuelta restarted on Tuesday with an extensive route of 147.2 kilometers between Tunja and Barichara that will mean the entry of the race to its final chapters on Santanderean roads. The Sote (3rd), the usual scenario of the training of the great Nairo Quintana, will be the first stumbling block but after a long descent and broken terrain, Santander will welcome you on the way back to the second port in the Común at just ten kilometers away of arrival at the historical monument of Barichara.

All eyes of the second week will be on stage nine. The Picacho, the only arrival in high of the Vuelta a Colombia, can leave a general definition that from the CRI is already selected in 10 names. San Gil will descend flag for a mountain festival with climbs to Aratoca (3ª), Curos (2ª) and the spectacular end in the Picacho in neighborhoods of Bucaramanga.

After the Picacho will come a new one for the sprinters with arrival in Barrancabermeja, end of the tenth stage and that will give way to a path full of swings between the oil capital and Puerto Boyacá that will open to the national round the doors of its end in Antioquia . Saturday August 12 is the date chosen for the last round of the return with arrival in La Union. Two colossi on the road after passing through Las Pavas (3rd) mouthwatering Alto Bonito (1st) and La Union (2nd) less than five kilometers from the finish line.

On Sunday the race will end in Medellin with a victory circuit of 103.2 kilometers that will throw the bolt and put the poster "Until 2019" after crowning a new king of the highest stage test of a sport stitched to history and imaginary collective of Colombia.

After Carapaz and Caicedo, Ecuador has another very interesting rider: Jefferson Cepeda. 20 years old, but he made some name for himself last year in Nariño e.g. Yesterday however, came his best result to date, winning on the mythical Cristo Redentor in dominating fashion. He put minutes into everyone. 2:30 to Caicedo, more than 6 minutes on Dani Diaz. Which team will bring him to Europe?

There’s two Jefferson Cepeda’s. Jefferson Alexander, who I was talking about, is 20. Jefferson Alveiro, the one you linked to, is 22 and rides for Caja Rural’s amateur team.
 
Vuelta de la Juventud (Vuelta a Colombia U23) starts today.
The candidates: Jefferson Alexander Cepeda (Ecuadorian), Juan Diego Alba, Brayan Hernández, Yeison Reyes (Aldemar's brother), Diego Camargo
Do not forget also: Kevin Cano, Santiago Ordoñez, Rafael Pineda, Camilo Ardila, Adrian Bustamante.
The 1-2 from the Nationals are not there (Tejada and Garcia)... OTOH, Chaves little brother seems to be there.
The route: http://www.federacioncolombianadeciclismo.com/ruta/vuelta-de-la-juventud-2019-circular-perfiles-y-altimetrias/
2 flat stages to start, then a mixed ITT (6Km flat + 8K@8%), then 2 HTF, and finally a circuit in Tunja that doesn't look too hard

It looks like the winner of the ITT will get the upper hand, unless from a weak team
 
With racing elsewhere still in limbo it's time to resurrect this beloved thread.

Argentina is one of the few countries that have somehow re-started their national racing calendar late last year. One of the biggest one-day races of the season took place last sunday with Laureano Rosas outsmarting Ricardo Escuela and Nico Naranjo from the Agrupacion Virgen de Fatima team on the final stretch by countering a late attack from Escuela:

Doble Difunta Correa



1-Laureano Rosas 04h.03m.45s.
2-Ricardo Escuela
3-Nicolás Naranjo
4-Alejandro Quilci
5-Gerardo Tivani
6-Leonardo Cobarrubia
7-Diego Tivani
8-Rubén Ramos
9-José Reyes
10-Emiliano Ibarra

Tomorrow follows the Clásica Doble Media Agua on a similar route:

On another note Argentina's biggest stage race, the Doble Bragado, has again been cancelled. :(

German Tiviani is one of those guys who really should have a contract at PCT level in Europe, he even rode for Unieuro in the u23 ranks. Fast guy who can climb really well, he could be a Richeze type of rider.

Has anybody checked out the recent results of the Vuelta al Tachira in Venezuela.
The race is currently being led by non other than Oscar Sevilla. He seems to be flying up the mountains and won the recent uphill time trial. It seems to be a very challenging parcours with plenty of climbing.
Check the link below for results

I see Sevilla is 44 now. Impressive results for him at this stage of his career.
