The 19th edition of the Colombia Potencia de la Vida 2023 Women’s Tour came to an end, which toured the departments of Putumayo and Huila, and crowned Estefanía Herrera from Antioquia as champion. This is the Colombian cyclist’s second title in this competition, after the one achieved in the 2018 edition.

Herrera, who assumed the lead on the penultimate day, after coming in second place in the section that reached Gigante (Huila), closed her performance with a flourish by securing her second title in a Women’s Tour, after surpassing the general to the Venezuelan Lilibeth Chacón, from Clarus Merquimia, and her teammate, Ana Cristina Sanabria, who finished 21 and 33 seconds behind the champion, respectively.

On the final day, Lilibeth Chacón obtained her second victory of the race, after surpassing Elizabeth Castaño (Pacto por el Deporte) and Kimberly Escobar (Supergiros) in the sprint.

The group controlled the race in the final stretch, stopping attacks and leaving everything to the pack, in which Chacón took the victory ahead of Elizabeth Castaño (Colombia Pacto Por El Deporte-GW Shimano) and Kimberly Escobar (Team SuperGiros-Alcaldía of Manizales).

The Colombia Pacto por el Deporte secured the team title and also managed to ensure that Jessenia Meneses was crowned mountain champion and Elizabeth Castaño was crowned in the points classification. Juliana Londoño, from Probike Gavia, took the title of the special sprint.
