The day has already arrived. It’s time to relive the excitement of international competition. On May 20 and 21 will be held in Krakow, Poland, Trial World Cup. As it couldn’t be any other way, the members of the ProRACE team are already heading to their destination in search of the first aim of the season.
The sensations and results achieved in the last regional championships predict a significant performance from our riders. Aside from our own desires, we know that the inclination is ideal and the adjustment of the new M5 OS has been very fast. An example of this is the performances that Ion Areitio and Manon Basseville put on in the first test of the French Trial Cup in Poitiers and Vašek Kolář in the Czech Republic Trial Cup, celebrated in Ústí nad Labem.
Manon Basseville achieved first place in the women’s Elite category. She explained to us how the rain and bad weather meant that her during her appearance on Saturday the ground was muddy and slippery. Even so, she felt good and managed to complete the first round with 0 points despite the bad conditions.
Ion Areitio finished in first place in the category Elite 20” and in fourth position overall. He returned to feeling very comfortable on the ground, managing to share the first step of the podium with the French rider Nicolas Valle in the first two rounds of the competition, obtaining for each of them a total of 7 penalty points. The final race was not easy at all, as to climb higher he had to take a risk and this time not everything went well. Despite everything, Ion made these statements:
It was a very fun and very physically demanding race. I found it very comfortable from the beginning and I completed the Trial as I had planned it. It was a good practice before the World Cup this week. As is becoming usual, the M5 performed very well and made my work easier. See you in Krakow!
As for Vasek Kolar, he achieved a hard-earned victory in the first round of the Trial Czech Republic Cup. He was only penalised with one point in the final, which put him in first place.
All of our riders, including Lucien Leiser, are en route to Krakow, where they will be called upon to demonstrate their talent. Their responsibility is to wear the “M” for Monty, while ours is to provide them with the best tools for competition. Everything is coming together: good luck champions!
