Seven Polartec-Kometa riders in the fight for national junior titles
Spanish Junior Cycling Championships
Soria, from 7 to 9 September
The city of Soria becomes the Spanish capital of training and master cycling this weekend for the Spanish Championships in both categories. Nationals where the Alberto Contador Foundation will have a lot of representation from the hand of the respective calls of the regional teams.
Although registrations will be formalised this Wednesday, when the championships will be presented, the forecast is for up to seven of the eleven cyclists from the Polartec-Kometa junior squad present on the Castilian-Leonese routes: Manuel Jesús Carrellán from Huelva, Carlos Rodríguez from Granada and Manuel Garrido from Jaén, with Andalusia; Iván Oliver, with Murcia; Álex Martín, with Catalonia; Javier Serrano and Miguel Patiño, with Madrid.
On Friday, from 3 p.m., all the time trials will be held. The junior men’s category will determine the fight for the red jersey on an 18.7-kilometre route through the towns of Garray and Velilla de la Sierra. Carlos Rodríguez, Álex Martín and Javi Serrano will be the three riders of the team that will face this competition.
For its part, the men’s junior route race will be held on Sunday on a 123.7-kilometre course resulting from the first part of the race, which will take place towards Magaña, San Pedro Manrique and Huérteles and the second part, which will take place on two occasions, essentially the same route as the one on which the time trial will have been held two days before. A race in which the seven runners of the Madrid team called by their teams will be part of the game.
