Another weekend full of competitions for the official Monty ProRACE team, but this time it was on national territory. Labége hosted the second competition of the regional championship “Manche du grand Sud” and it was there that Ion Areitio, brand representative, was to continue his preparation ahead of the upcoming international dates.
Due to constant rain, the competition was delayed by an hour, but it did not count for much as the ground conditions did not improve. Nonetheless, Ion and his Monty M5 OS achieved a deserved victory with a total of 17 points in the 15 zones that made up the competition.
Ion Areitio: “I’m very happy with the result achieved, even more so considering that I was the only 20” rider of the whole category. The power to fight against the 26” category motivated me. We raced our own race from start to finish, without focusing on the opponents’ results and I think that’s what made us climb to the top of the podium. Once more the M5OS has not failed us; it’s a true competition machine”
As we await our international commitments… we will continue strong!
