December 28/09 21:43 pm - Vuelta Ciclista Internacional a Costa Rica - Stage 12


Posted by Editoress on 12/28/09
 

Colombia's Janier Acevedo of team Greatwall-Indeportes Antioquia took the overall title at the 45th Vuelta Ciclista Internacional a Costa Rica after the 12th and final stage today between San Isidro of Pérez Zeledón, at the South of the country, and the capital San José.

Acevedo crossed the finish line in third place, only three seconds behind stage winner Juan Carlos Rojas of local team Plycem-JPS-Orbea. However, this result was good enough for the South American to claim the 19th title for a Colombian racer at Costa Rica’s main road tour.

Rojas, a former La Vuelta a Costa Rica champion in 2005, and one of the local favourites, covered the 134.8 kilometre course of this “queen stage” with a time of 3:52:34. Second place went to last year’s champion Gregory Brenes, of team BCR-Pizza Hut-KHS, who couldn’t catch Acevedo in the general classification and gave up his crown this time.

Nevertheless, the 21 year old rider secured the U23 trophy as a consolation prize. This might be the last race for Brenes on his own country, since the Spanish UCI Continental Team Burgos-Monumental recently signed him for coming road seasons.  

The new champion also won the red polka dot jersey of the Best Climber in the race, while his team finished up first in the Teams’ Classification.

The final stage winner Juan Carlos Rojas, took the Points title, while Citibank-Economy Rent a Car-Blue’s Eduardo Garita took the overall Sprints title.
