Second round of the European Championship took place near Kreszowice, in Poland. The race was set in two days of competition, so both Saturday and Sunday were important to earn good Championship points. After winning in style the opening round in Castellolí (Spain) back in April, Berta Abellán landed on Polish soil as the points leader and in a great shape, specially after claiming another important victory at the last round of the Spanish Series.
Day 1 couldn’t start any better for Abellán, as she quickly discouraged her rivals by storming through the first set of sections to deliver only 5 marks. Trentini (Montesa) and Hakonsen (TRS), the first one with 10 marks and the second one with 15, were far away from Vertigo’s factory rider, who impressed everyone with such an early performance. On lap 2 Abellán would stay focused, and with anotherbrilliant ride she secured her second victory of the season as he only left 6 more marks for a total of11.
With the boost of confidence coming from her victory on the opening day, Abellán showed again on Sunday why she currently holds the Championship lead. She finished 2nd, 1 point away from the victory after a tight battle against Bäuml (Montesa). After all, this was either a great result for the Championship, as Abellán leaves Poland having widened her distance ahead of the field. Now, the European Series take a breath to come back in August. Next goal for Abellán is the TrialGP Women Championship, which begins this coming weekend in Japan.
