This weekend we had a double date for our PMX Racing riders and both races were a success. Congratulations team!

A good test before starting the World Cup for Jofre Cullell was in Haiming, Austria, where he would measure himself against his direct rivals in the U23 category. And it couldn't have gone better because he got the victory, his first international win of the season.

After a first few laps in which he struggled to get into a good rhythm, he took distance to the rest of the racers together with the European Champion Joel Roth and the German List. On the final lap, and in the circuit harder zone with a long and steep climb, he was able to open up a large enough gap to reach the finish line alone, thus achieving this prestigious victory. Jofre said he was "very satisfied. The first few laps were hard for me, it was difficult, as I had been training quite hard for two or three weeks without racing. I felt a lack of rhythm but I knew how to suffer and little by little I found a better feeling. With two laps to go I got away with the European Champion, Joel Roth, and we put everything on the line on the last climb. I was able to enter first on the final downhill, open a gap and take the victory".

In this way, Jofre proves to be in a perfect shape to start the most important races of the season with the Albstadt World Cup on May 8 as a goal.

Double podium in the International Catalan Cup

Without the possibility of competing in the UCI Junior Series, Francesc Barber disputed this weekend the qualifying race of the International Catalan Cup in Santa Susanna, Barcelona (Spain) in the Junior category. The rider from the Balearic Islands, arrived after having been training specifically at altitude for a long period of time. And this training helped the Balearic rider to win the men's race. In this way, Francesc added his fourth great success of this season. 

On the other hand, Sara Méndez opened the PMX Racing Team's participation this weekend in Santa Susanna. And it was great for her, as she got a valuable second place at the end of the race, behind the French Olivia Onesti, World Champion in the Relay category.

So, the weekend of the PMX Racing Team was a success that we hope to repeat in the next competitions that are coming up.
