TOUR TO VENEZUELA: YUGEN RAMÍREZ WINS THE SIXTH, MATTEO SPREAFICO FOLLOWS LEADER

CARACAS. Yugen Ramírez, from the Venezuela País de Futuro team, survived a flight of 14 runners over 200 kilometers to win the sixth stage of the Vuelta Ciclista a Venezuela while the Italian Matteo Spreafico kept the lead in the queen stage of the race.

At 10 o'clock in the morning, under the applause of a number of people, the test of the town of Ospino Portuguesa State started. Only 15 kilometers had elapsed when they formed the escape Cristian Pita (Movistar), Jackson Ramirez, Wilmen Bravo (Deportivo Tachira), Emilio Cespedes (JHS Group), Jesus Villegas, Simon Marin (Government of Miranda-Trek), Jhonathan Salinas, Yurgen Ramirez (Venezuela, Future Country), Robinson Ruiz, Miguel Zuniga (National Team of Peru), José Piñero (Ángel Pulgar-Fundela Foundation), Gaudy Ochoa (Bicycles Castilla-Idermi) and Luis Sablon (Guadalupe).

Lacking 25 kilometers to reach Nirgua, the group of getaways escaped Yurgen Ramírez and set a pace to get away from their escape companions little by little, passing through Nirgua under the applause of a huge audience, letting go of those who endured the imposed rhythm and I reach the goal with my arms raised in victory.

The Vuelta a Venezuela will continue this Wednesday with the dispute of its seventh stage, of 137.6 kilometers between Nirgua and Morón. (www.esciclismo.com)
