Since the season started Pau Martínez carries an incredible straight of victories. It is two in a row in the Spanish Championship in the competitive Junior class, and this weekend he added a third one in his European debut aboard the Vertical R 125c.c in Youth. Despite the race developing in dry conditions, the Italian sections didn’t offer that much grip, leaving no room for errors specially when on the throttle to attempt the big steps. After a learning lap 1 Martínez decided it was time to open the gap with the other riders at the beginning of the second one, starting to push harder and widening the difference at the top of the standings to secure a solid victory, scoring almost half points than the rider behind him. A brilliant start of the season.
Another Vertigo rider shining in Pietramurata was David Avendaño, who claimed an amazing 3rd place in Junior. He held an intense battle for the spot with Gil Vila, both matching punctuations by the end of the race. The difference of cleans brought the particular win for the spot to Avendaño and with it, a great result for the Venezuelan in his first appearance in the European Series at the helm of the Vertical.
Lorenzo Gandola finished 9th in the premier class, plenty of Trial 2 World Championship rivals. Leire Rodríguez ended up in 8th place in Women’s International.
