Nothing can resist Demi Vollering. Like her compatriot Annemiek Van Vleuten in previous years, the Dutchwoman leaves no crumbs for her competitors with a second success on the roads of the Basque Country after a first acquired in 2022. In the streets of Donostia, the winner of the Women’s Vuelta lifted arms at the end of the last stage after an attack more than 30 km from the finish. She won alone with 44 seconds ahead of the pack of favorites. Today’s podium is 100% Dutch with Thalita de Jong (Lotto Dstny Ladies) and Mischa Bredewold (SD Worx-Protime).

Frenchwoman Juliette Labous (dsm-firmenich PostNL) finished 3rd in the general classification, 52” behind Vollering who is ahead of her teammate Bredewold (+34”). The patroness of women’s cycling, title holder of the Tour de France, made a raid on this Tour of the Basque Country by winning the general, the mountain classification and the green jersey. An unchallenged domination which continues for the world No. 1, who should skip the women’s Giro in order to preserve himself for the women’s Tour de France (August 12-18).
