The Massi team's downhill squad kicked off its season in the Barcelonan locality of Sant Andreu de la Barca this past weekend. Members raced the 10th edition of the X Prize Marzzochi - Gran Premi Diputacio of Barcelona.
Bernat Guardia, a new member of the team, finished in fourth place. "I am happy with the result although I feel a little disappointed for not to have been able to make it to the podium. In any case, I was fighting until the end, and I am satisfied to make the top five, considering the great level of all the participants. I am doing well physically and still I have plenty of room to improve."
Teammate Iván Oulego, who finished seventh, said, "I felt good racing. I made some mistakes, but am happy with my results considering the level of the field - comparable to a World Cup."
The team is riding Toro DH bikes this season, equipped with the new Fulcrum Red Fire wheels.
