Olivia Baril took her first victory for new team Movistar at the Women Cycling Pro Costa De Almería ahead of Ane Santesteban (Laboral Kutxa-Fundación Euskadi) and Karolina Perekitko (Winspace).
The Canadian was the strongest on the uphill finale into Mojácar and after only three days racing with Movistar, already has a victory to add to her palmarès. Baril joined in the summer initially on a one-year deal but extended in the winter and is set to ride for the Spanish side until 2026.
In only the second edition of the Spanish one-day race, a completely different route was designed with an uphill finale instead of the flatter finish won last season by Arianna Fidanza (CERATIZIT-WNT).
The riders arrived in ones and twos up the steep final 1.5km climb at an average gradient of 8%, with Baril the strongest.
