When you believe, you finally get it. Gonzalo Serrano was faithful to the saying and repeated today in Iznájar (Córdoba) the same play that just two weeks ago did not bring him the victory in Cullera, also end of the second stage from the Volta to the Valencian Community.
From Madrid, 25 years old, third season as a professional in Caja Rural-Seguros RGA after winning the Spanish Cup with the green development team. He started his attack with the banner of the last kilometer in sight, just whene uphill finish started . Bahrain-McLaren, Movistar or Astana had worked to take the race under control to that point, but there was no response to Serrano’s dry and determined attack.
He didn’t look back, he didn’t do it in the first 300 meters, convinced of his options. He quickly opened a gap in a climb he had studied in detail and for which he had kept. By the time the others wanted to reply, Gonzalo was already celebrating in goal his triumph, which is the first as a professional and gives Caja Rural-Seguros RGA the first victory of a promising 2020.
Gonzalo Serrano: “It was a day that suited me very well. Yesterday I tried to keep mi strength thinking about today’s stage, since it was the route that best suited my characteristics and we had studied it in detail. Normally it does not come out but today luckily we have finished it off perfectly. We had two options: with me or with Orluis. The last stronghold has been climbed, I have seen myself with good legs and I wanted to try it”.
“I think I’m not aware yet, I don’t believe it. My first victory as a professional and in a race of the level of Andalusia. It is difficult to assimilate it. Right now, both the team and myself, we are very well and the goal is to continue adding”.
