Cycling Team

Camprodon – La Seu d’Urgell

A stage of contrasts. They set out on a spectacular, and rather cold, day. These conditions followed the cyclists during the tough climb to the La Molina ski resort. From there, with half a stage behind them and pedalling at over 1,500 m, they started the dizzying descent to the floor of the La Cerdanya Valley. Spectacular trails and full autumn colours stole the show on this second and unforgettable stage.

TwoNav Wins Garmin Titan Desert 2019

The second stage, known as the marathon, was marred by the tragic death of Fernando Civera, a 46-year-old cyclist who tragically lost his life.

The third stage was suspended out of respect for Civera’s death.

On Wednesday, the 1st of May, Anna Ramírez won her third consecutive stage and Josep Betalù regained his leading position.

Sylvain Chavanel, former professional cyclist, won the 5th stage. Anna Ramírez also kept hold of her title from the previous day with 17 minutes ahead of the general classification, making her the clear favourite. Josep Betalù continued to lead.
