The Portuguese Tiago Ferreira (DMT Racing) and Arantxa Salvad (Gobik) won the second round of the Scott Marathon BTT by Continental, a test that also marked the premiere of the 2021 Open de Espaa mountain bike.
The day woke up with a fine rain that left the terrain in perfect condition to be able to flow throughout the entire route. The cyclists were aware that it was key to catch the line well to avoid slipping or falling. Authentic mountain bike.
And so it was with the performance of the cyclists. The list of entries suggested a titanic struggle for victory. Ahead a route of 60 kilometers and 1,400 meters of unevenness, alternating more rolling sections, with sections of trails within the high forests of the area.
From the beginning it rolled at an incredible speed. The initial section of ascent made a first selection of cyclists, but the dance and the great differences came from kilometer thirty.
Tiago Ferreira tensed his pace to gain margin, but lost a few seconds on the trails. Cass, Vctor Manuel, Ferreira and Alejandro Gmez rode leading the test, trying to maintain the differences with the chasing groups. The Bolivian got off the hook and the trio was in the lead.
In the final section, more rolling, the three cyclists collaborated to avoid being reached and to compete for the victory at the sprint. There the Portuguese was the most powerful and took the victory with a time of 2 hours, 19 minutes and 29 seconds.
In the finals, Arantxa Salvad was in first position from the first moment and tried to keep the margin, achieving a very solvent victory ahead of Lourdes Cayetano (Biking Point) and Lara Lois (Extol MTB Team).
Thus, the Open de Espaa has the first leaders of the year, with Ferreira and Salvad donning the jersey.
The Scott Marathon BTT by Continental continues to discover new territories where to practice mountain biking, to make all those Pro and Open cyclists who love the sport of two wheels enjoy.
