Circuito del Guadiana / Copa de España
Don Benito – Don Benito (85,7 km)
The first ‘seven’ of the new season of the EOLO-KOMETA Cycling Team will be formed by Nil Aguilera, Joan Cadena, Lucas Guillermo, David Puente, Gergo Magyar, César Pérez and Manuel Sanroma. Five second year juniors and two first year to face a race, first appointment of the 2022 edition of the Spanish Cup, without big variations in his conception: for this category, two laps to a circuit of 42 kilometres in which the ascent to the skirts of the castle of Magacela stands out as great orographic difficulty.
“Don Benito has the unknown factor of the first race of the Spanish Cup and even, in some cases, of the season. We arrive well, we have done a very good job with the trainers, although in the end it is the competition that puts you in your place and tells you where you stand in relation to the rivals. We’re going with a team ready to manage several fronts, capable of controlling the race for a possible sprint finish or with fast riders with the ability to compete if they filter into a good breakaway or a breakaway. But we will have to see how the race evolves”, says director Guillermo Gutiérrez.
