Vasquez wins Spanish DH Nationals

27 year old David Vazquez (Maxxis-MSC) won his fourth National Championship last weekend, winning the Downhill Spanish title in Bilbao, and also picking up a handy silver medal in the 4X as well, beating many pre-race favourites.

The national championship downhill course was brand new for the event, contained man made obstacles - like big berms, jumps and a big bridge to cross - but was short and required pedaling. Vasquez was the only rider to go under 2mins 30secs all day and took a well deserved win.
