MADRID, 23 Oct. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Spanish cyclist Sebastián Mora finished in fourth position in the scoring test of the track cycling World Cup, which is being held in the French town of Roubaix, while Alejandro Martínez, also Spanish, finished seventh in the timed kilometer.
Mora, silver last year, once again exhibited his great level in a test that he has dominated. The long-distance runner of the Spanish team started strongly and from the beginning was a great candidate for the podium. However, before reaching the equator of the test, an unexpected movement regrouped the majority of participants.
Among the runners who were not part of that offense was Sebastián Mora, who went from having 43 points to 23 and from then on saw his medal options become more complicated. In the final leg of the competition, Kenny de Ketele and Benjamin Thomas clearly stood out with the Frenchman taking the title.
Sebastián Mora fought with the Dutch Vincent Hoppezak for the bronze medal, which finally went to his rival. The Dutchman finished with 35 points to the 24 of the Villareal runner, according to the Royal Spanish Cycling Federation (RFEC).
For his part, Alejandro Martínez achieved the same result in the CRI Kilometer that he achieved in the last European Championship, after entering the final with a record of 1’01 “000. In the fight for the medals, the Valencian recorded a time very similar, 1’01 “213, to finish in seventh position.
Furthermore, Eukene Larrarte finished twelfth in the omnium and Erik Martorell, who also made his debut this Friday in an Elite World Championship, finished thirteenth in the individual pursuit with a time of 4’20 “307.
