Demi Vollering also reigns supreme in the Basque Country in 2023. After winning all the stages of Itzulia last year, she remains unbeaten this season too. After yesterday, the Dutch rider also won the second stage and remains a bit more comfortable in the yellow leader's jersey. She is now 56 seconds ahead of her teammate Marlen Reusser, who takes the podium for the second day in a row. "I knew my form was good, but to have won all five stages of Itzulia so far is really special," she said.
Three times is a charm. Demi Vollering made cycling history by winning all three stages in the first ever Itzulia Women. "Itzulia is a great race. Winning three stages in a row, that's insane."
A bis number for Demi Vollering and Team SD Worx in Itzulia Women! After controlling the race for a whole day and being alert at the front, Vollering slipped into the decisive breakaway. On the steep final meters she made the difference for the second day in a row. With a devastating acceleration, the 25-year-old Dutch rider rode to her second World Tour victory in as many days. She also strengthened her leading position in the general classification of Itzulia Women. "This was the perfect day," she said.
Itzulia Women heralded the start of the second part of the season. The multi-day stage race began with a difficult opening stage, which was convincingly won by Demi Vollering. The Dutch rider was always to be seen at the front in the decisive moments of the race. She finished it off in an uphill sprint after a breakaway with Pauliena Rooijakkers and Kristen Faulkner. "This finish suited me, this gives a very good feeling," Vollering said in an initial reaction.
