On Sunday was raced in San Sebastián de los Reyes (Madrid) the fourth round of the Junior’s Cup of Spain, in which the RH+/POLARTEC successfully defended the leader’s jersey of Marc Brustenga, despite the hardness of a parcour which was climbed twice the Paracuellos del Jarama hill, always selective.
The director of the junior team of the Alberto Contador Foundation was on this occasion Guillermo Gutierrez, who started with the goal “to harden the race and make the selection. In the first climb to Paracuellos the peloton was reduced to 50 riders, while on the second climb only a group of 4 or 5 riders stayed in front, but in the end there was a regrouping of about 20 men among whom was Tomeu Gelabert, who finished sixth”.
As Gelabert, it was also notable the work for the team of Alejandro Ropero, David Cabezas and Carlos Garcia, although the latter was affected by a cold. Also ran with troubles in an Achilles tendon Jose Antonio Garcia, while Cristian Fernandez suffered a puncture on the climb to Paracuellos that left him out of the fight. Carlos Alvarez also ran still affected by the aftermath of a crash that stoped him perform as he wanted.
Most importantly, in addition to the Mountain Trophy who got Gelabert, was that Marc Brustenga, with the yellow jersey at the start, kept it at the finish line, so the team will face the last two rounds of the Cup of Spain with the lead on their hands. Next August 7 is scheduled the race of Peñafiel (Valladolid) and August 12 will be the last, in Moral de Calatrava (Ciudad Real).
