Ismael Ventura and Naima Madler, champions of the Catalunya Bike Race 2021

The sun of the first two days of competition has given way to the water, which has muddied the most technical sectors of a route of 68 km and 2,241 meters of positive elevation gain. The start of the track gave way to the ups and downs of pure mountain biking in Vilallobent-Queixans, giving Ever Alejandro Gómez the opportunity to attack to look for the leader’s jersey. However, during the ascent to La Molina, Gomez has suffered from technical problems and has been overtaken by his competitors. Among them, Cristofer Bosque has stood out, who has attacked taking advantage of the opportunity of the moment.

Upon the arrival of the mythical path 732 over La Molina, the spectacular single track that runs through the undergrowth has witnessed how the leader Cristofer Bosque, has passed more than 3 minutes of the then second classified of the day, Xavi Jove, but has broken the handlebar in an accident on the asphalt of Alp and has had to leave. Fortunately, Cristofer has not had to regret serious physical damage. Ismael Ventura has been the main beneficiary of the situation, maintaining an elite leadership during the three days competition that has allowed him to win the winner’s elastic.

“Today has been a day of authentic Mountain Bike, pure survival. We have all had breakdowns, I have punctured three times, I have broken a wheel… ”, explained Ventura, who did not have them all before the demand of the CBR: “I am super happy because there has been a moment in which I have been on the verge of retiring. When I broke a tire, I thought it would not arrive, but it was close to a technical area and we have been able to repair it ”.

In the Elite Women category, Naima Madler has maintained her mandate with an iron fist, controlling her rivals at all times, not without suffering along the way. Two punctures have forced her to get the best of herself to make up lost ground with her pursuer Michalina Ziolkowska, but the German cyclist ended up crossing the finish line as the first classified of the day and the general classification.

“It has been a very tough stage. We were just warming up and it started to rain. I have to say that I like the rain in the races, but it was difficult during the technical sections with wet rocks and roots ”, Naima, completely drenched in mud, has pointed out. “I will return to the Catalunya Bike Race. I am really happy. The atmosphere is very familiar and it is very special because of the area, the climate and its situation. I think it is no secret to anyone: I have been in two Bike Races and I have loved them ”, he declared.

The Catalunya Bike Race ends the 2021 season of the Bike Race by Octagon, which has also crowned the Andalucía Bike Race by Garmin, La Rioja Bike Race presented by Pirelly and MMR Asturias Bike Race. The 2022 season will start in February with the eleventh edition of the Andalucía Bike Race by Garmin, from 21 to 26.
