Then, when there were 10 kilometers left to finish, Lina Rojas attacked again and left alone, but in the last three kilometers when the ascent became more demanding, it was reached and surpassed by the Risaraldense Natalia Muñoz, champion of National Road Games in 2014, arriving alone at the goal located in the main park of Anserma with a time of three hours, 42 minutes and 39 seconds.
