Triple Spanish Success For Vollering

After her overall victories in Vuelta Femenina and Itzulia, Demi Vollering of Team SD Worx – Protime has achieved her goal to also win the Vuelta a Burgos. The Dutch champion managed to take the final stage with uphill finish to her name, adding lustre to her overall victory in the third Spanish stage race. “This is really a relief. The victories in Spain have comforted me after the wins in the classic spring were lacking. I hope to further improve this good condition towards my big goals this season: the Olympics, the Tour de France Femmes and the World Championships.”

In the Canicosa de la Sierra, Demi Vollering ensured Team SD Worx – Protime’s third consecutive win in the Vuelta Burgos. “It’s great to win the three Spanish stage races,” she added. “After a difficult spring, this is confirmation that the form is good. I also felt good in the spring classics, but each time it was just not enough. I am happy to win the Vuelta Burgos after Vuelta Femenina and Itzulia Femenina. It was quite cold during the final stage. My team controlled perfectly. Lorena Wiebes helped me to position myself well for the final climb. But I was so cold that I had no real acceleration left in my legs. By keeping the pace as high as possible, I hoped to cross the top alone. That plan succeeded. After that, the road to the stage win was open.”

“May is a brilliant month for me. I’m already looking forward to the sequel. My big goals are coming up with the Olympics, the Tour de France and the World Championships. First, I want to enjoy these wins in Spain. It’s special to win the overall classification at the Vuelta Burgos two years in a row!”

All eyes will undoubtedly be on Vollering as she looks forward to the Olympics, the World Championships and the Tour de France Femmes in the coming months.
