Alejandro Ropero, victory and lead in the Junior Cup of Spain
Alejandro Ropero got today in Tarragona the victory in La Canonja G.P., the second race of the Junior Cup of Spain, which also earned the provisional lead in the Cup, in which the RH+/Polartec consolidated the first position by teams, achieved in the initial race in Castellón.
Ropero won in a sprint of five riders who came ahead to the finish line, following a very tactical race controlled at all times by the men of RH+/Polartec, doing the selection of the group and putting in its best effective, despite even having lost great strengths, as Tomeu Gelabert and Joan Martí Bennassar, by punctures and falls.
The RH+/Polartec was also this weekend in the Tour of Asturias, the only team in the category that did both races, for what had the reinforcement arrived from Belgium of two riders from Tielste Team that did a great job.
Despite its youth, RH+/Polartec riders raised a tough battle against local MMR team, especially thanks to Carlos Garcia, third on the podium after a fall in the second stage that perhaps stopped him from finishing higher, and Jose Antonio Garcia, second in the third and final stage and winner of the Regularity.
