The Muleño Luis León Sánchez Gil, from Astana, has been proclaimed champion of Spain in road cycling in the championships held in the province of Jaén with the end in Baeza. The veteran cyclist has had a brilliant race where he has experienced an intense finish, with an attack by Jesús Herrada three kilometers away to which the Murcian responded, that a year ago he was runner-up in Murcia behind Alejandro Valverde.
But this time Luis León has indeed hung the gold around his neck after catching up with Cuenca in the streets of Baeza and overcoming him with a final sprint 800 meters from the finish line.
The work of Gorka Izaguirre, who was finally second, has led Luis León to win a title that he had sought for many years and that had resisted him. But this time, on a tough circuit that adapted to his characteristics and only two days after being national runner-up in the time trial, the man from Mule managed to dose his strength to win the title.
