The very tough final day lifted the Burgos BH cyclist to 23rd place overall, adding his second result at this level after the Volta a Catalunya
Itzulia presented, as usual, a fearsome final day. Ángel Madrazo moved in the early stages looking for the escape, although he did not get to hook up with the headers and rolled in an interspersed group.
Already in the decisive part, Dani Navarro took advantage of his experience and capacity for suffering to resist to the maximum with the favorites and get into that final top-25.
«It has been a very hard lap in which I have gone from less to more. I would like to have been in the top 20 but I am very happy to have stayed close. The level was very high and I think it is important to be there”, explained Dani Navarro.
Eight stages in Turkey
Tomorrow, Sunday, the Presidential Tour of Turkey kicks off with the first day that presents a leg-breaking profile and a steep finish that will elect the first leader. Burgos BH maintains an intense competition calendar that will also take it to Belgium and France in the next few days for the dispute of three classics: the Flecha Brabanzona, the Classic Besançon and the Tour du Jura.
