Vertigo is delighted to announce that Berta Abellán will remain with the team in 2020. Keeping her in the Factory Team was a priority towards the next season, so now that the agreement has ben reached it means another exciting new for Vertigo just a week after the team also confirmed Jaime Busto’s contract extension.
Since she joined the green family in 2018, it has been a successful journey for Abellán and Vertigo. In her first campaign she clinched the European Championship in the premier class, finished runner-up in the TrialGP Women World Championship and was crowned Spanish Champion. A list of achievements she has extended throughout 2019 by finishing the TrialGP campaign replicating her runner-up result from 2018 and taking a brilliant victory at the Trial des Nations in Ibiza together with Team Spain.
Abellán has experienced an impressive progression during the last two seasons, becoming one of the best female riders in the international trials scene. The Vertical has proved to be the perfect bike for Abellán to keep developing all her skills and great potential, and with 2020 being the third season the duo will enter together, perspectives couldn’t look better for both parties.
Berta Abellán: “I’m stoked to continue with Vertigo for a third consecutive season. I’m super happy with the bike and the team, and next year I hope to make a new step forward and get closer to Emma in the TrialGP World Championship. I’m really looking forward to beginning the tests with the 2020 bike and to give my best, I’m training really hard and I hope everything goes as planned. I’m really grateful to Vertigo and excited for what is to come.”
