An excellent third place by teams and several individual positions of relevance in the different classifications were the performances of the Holguin cyclists in the National Classic of Route, which concluded this Sunday with the twelfth stage Los Palacios-Havana.
That performance allowed Holguín to improve the fourth place in 2016 and meet the pre-competition forecast, while placing three clyclists in the top ten in the overall standings.
Individually, the young Frank Consuegra was the one of best performance by this province with a fifth position in the individual general classification, to 7.33 minutes of the winner of the turn, Pedro Portuondo, from Santiago de Cuba. Consuegra was also runner-up in sub-23 years.
Seventh and tenth were the Holguin Leonel Batista and Alejandro Parra, respectively, in the overall individual standings.
Holguin cycling begins with a good step in 2017. This discipline, for some years, is one of the leading sports in Holguin. In 2016 it achieved third place in school cycling competition, first in juvenile and second in majors for an excellent second integral place.
