Carlos Rodríguez, seventh in the continental time trial
Carlos Rodriguez, a junior rider from Granada, participated this Friday in the European Cycling Championships against the clock of his category, which will be held in the Czech Republic until next Sunday. The one in Almuñecar finished in seventh place. Belgian Remco Evenenpoel won the gold medal, his compatriot Llan van Wilder the silver medal and the bronze medal went to Italian Antonio Tiberi.
Rodriguez completed the 23 kilometers with start and finish in Brno in 31:31, 1:39 more than the winner. Belgium’s Remco Evenepoel is in a frenetic 2018, with a win in the last six races, a day-long race in stages. Practically, of the eleven races he has competed in this year, he has won in eight.
“The sensations have been more or less good, although as there have only been ups and downs the time trial has also become a little strange,” said a Rodríguez who will be one of the Spanish national team’s strengths next Sunday in the fight for gold at the circuit designed in the town of Zlin and on a course of 118.8 kilometers.
