After already winning the opening stage in the Tour of Burgos yesterday, Lorena Wiebes came first again today on a climb in the center of Lerma, after a hilly stage of 118 kilometers.
Afterwards, however, the Dutch top sprinter was put back to third place by the competition jury. The reason: Wiebes pushed the American Chloé Dygert (Canyon//SRAM Racing) in the sprint preparation, although she doesn’t seem to have done it on purpose. You can view the images below.

The victory logically went to the number two, Demi Vollering, and so the best formation from the women’s peloton could triumph again even after a declassification. Dygert was second. For Vollering it is already her 10th victory this season.
Wiebes will keep her leader’s jersey. Shirin van Anrooij (Trek-Segafredo) finished sixth and leads the young rider classification. Tomorrow’s stage is one for the sprinters. The final stage finishes on top of Lagunas de Neila, a very tough climb out of category.
