Cyclist brings pride to Realejos
Los Realejos has celebrated another source of pride in the sporting world.
A reception was held to honour the achievements of local cyclist, José Javier Abrante who gained a gold in the Pico de Las Nieves cycle climb. He was triumphant in the group for 35 to 44-year-olds and seventh overall.
The Gran Canaria test covers 23 kilometres with an average gradient of seven per cent and a drop of 1,650 metres.
“Once again, the name of Los Realejos has travelled on the jersey of this rider in an international test which is a source of pride to all of us in Realejos,” said sports councillor, Benito Dévora.
