Transpyr completed the third stage between La Seu d’Urgell and El Pont de Suert, and now the event is situated in the entrance of the Aragonese Pyrenees, on the way to Aínsa. It seems that the new dates (Transpyr has advanced nearly a month in relation to other years) is favoring the cyclists because the temperatures are more bearable than the last years.
However, despite for the first time in the history of Transpyr the first stage was completed without dropouts, the accumulation of fatigue is starting to take its toll among the group that today has had a long stage and so physical, with very technical descents. The fastest team has been the brothers Raul and Lluis Oliver.
Tomorrow awaits a journey of almost 98 km and 3000 meters of ascent, a stage that will check the ability and mental power of the cyclists.
Meanwhile, the GAES Transpyr Backroads bike riders today have released the stage with the tough ascent in the Port del Cantó, where Ibon Zugasti (from Imparables team) was again the fastest. The large group has completed the long stage today of 137 km and 3,150 vertical meters.
