Massi goes one-two at Spanish downhill championships

Guardia and Oulego fastest at La Molina

Bernat Guardia (Massi) won the Spanish downhill national championships this weekend at the La Molina Bike Park in Girona. 234 racers participated by racing the 2.3km course descending 550m. Guardia's  teammate, Iván Oulego, made it a double by finishing in second place.

It was Guardia's first national elite title. He had previous won a junior title in 2000, the Under 23 title in 2002 and was runner-up in the elites in 2005 and 2007

"It's been 12 years since my first Spanish Championships - when I was 14. Then I was doing just my third downhill race, but I thought that some day I might win the championship for the highest category. It was also in La Molina.  Yesterday, my dream was fulfilled in the same place where it all began."

The race was not easy for Guardia. "It was almost impossible to keep good speed and not make mistakes on the circuit, which deteriorated a lot during the day. I knew in the last meters when I heard the announcer mentioning my name that the championship was mine."

Jorge Aguin Castro (LTM Racing Santa Cruz) finished third.

Victoria Hernandez won the women's race ahead of Carolina Martinez and Mireia Bosca (LTMracing-Santa Cruz).
