With a time of 11:40, almost half a minute less than the second classified, the Polartec-Kometa native from Granada, Carlos Rodríguez Cano was proclaimed the regional time trial champion in his category this Friday.
Rodríguez continued his dominance in a discipline in which, as a cadet, he already won the Andalusian title in 2017 (Chiclana de la Frontera, Cádiz; 9.5 kilometres) and 2016 (Osuna, Sevilla; 15.4 kilometres).
In a race held on an 8.5-kilometre circuit with a start and finish in the town of Bélmez de la Moraleda in Jaén, the Almuñecar racecourse was built on a long downhill stretch and an uphill stretch. A complex circuit, with 130 meters of positive slope.
Rodríguez, who was the sixth rider to take the start of the 37 who took part in the race, won ahead of David Delgado and Ángel Cabrera.
The new Andalusian junior champion against the clock is concentrating this weekend with his teammates at the Polartec-Kometa in the Hotel Sercotel Princesa de Éboli de Pinto and will take part, on Sunday, the Grand Prix Peña Ciclista Monje de Fuenlabrada (Madrid).
