Maverick Viñales makes the leap in the Skoda Titan Desert in Almería

More than 280 participants will take the start of the prologue that takes place this Friday, October 7, with the start and finish in El Toyo. The ŠKODA Titan Desert Almería warms up for an edition that promises to be tremendously exciting due to its route, its adventure, its camp and, of course, the excellent participation.

On the male side, Oscar Pujol is the current winner of the ŠKODA Titan Desert Almería. The Catalan rider has to start as the favorite in the pools, as he is the only one in the peloton who knows what it is like to dominate the Tabernas desert under his bike. Although it will not be easy for him to repeat the feat in 2022.

Konny Looser he doesn’t know what it’s like to lose in a Titan World Series event. Of his two participations in the ŠKODA Titan Desert Morocco, the Swiss has come out with two red winner’s jerseys. In 2022 he will make his debut in Almería, a test that seems to be even more suited to his qualities: without navigation and with more meters of difference in altitude.

One of the great appearances is that of the Moto GP rider Maverick Vinales. The 2013 Moto3 world champion will participate representing ŠKODA, of which he has recently been appointed ambassador, in what will be his debut in the ŠKODA Titan Desert Almería.

Along with them, a host of top-level runners who will seek to emerge victorious from El Toyo. There are those who are already historical and well-versed in the Titan universe, such as the quadruple champion of the Titan Desert, Josep Betalu; the former professional runner and a full Titan Legend Platinum, ManuelTriki’ Beltran; or the European MTB champion, Tom Misser, who, also as a SKODA ambassador, will accompany Maverick in his first participation.

A little more unknown, but without losing sight of his participation, we will have to closely follow Fran blacksmith, new runner-up in the ŠKODA Titan Desert Morocco. Wonderful surprise that of a road veteran who tries his hand at mountain biking, like the Euskaltel rider Luis Angel Mate.

The vacant throne of Naima Madlen

In the absence of the current champion, Naima Madlen, Vera Looser It can be before your great option of triumph. She already did everything she could to succeed in the ŠKODA Titan Desert Morocco, but she constantly came up against that wall that was Anna Ramírez. Without the Catalan in the peloton, the Namibian runner starts as the favorite to succeed Madlen in Almeria’s list of winners.

Outside of the Loosers, eyes have to be on another star of the road world who has already cut his teeth in cyclocross events. Eider Merinotop 10 of the Giro and former Movistar team rider, will be part of the ŠKODA WeLoveCycling team, representing Menabi, a ŠKODA dealer in Donosti.

Without options in the Women’s Elite due to her presence in the Mixed Duo category, we must not lose sight of two other great runners who will ride through Tabernas. The winner of the ŠKODA Titan Desert Morocco 2021, Ariadna Rodenasand the recent winner in the Sea Otter and national champion of Colombia, Monica Calderon.

Also in the mixed duo category, two well-known ambassadors of the event will participate: ‘Tungui’ Cuenco and ‘Chamba’ Castilla.
