BMX riders praised by trainer who urges circuit improvements
BMX T-Riders from La Laguna have achieved three national titles in Móstoles.
The T-Riders won three victories in the Spanish BMX Championship held over two days at the Andrés Torrejón Municipal Circuit.
At the national meeting, which involved eleven ‘raiders’ of the club that has the collaboration of the local council’s sports department, Diego Suárez was proclaimed champion of the categories Cadet and Cruiser A, while Daniel Fernandez did the same in Promises.
Two years ago, Diego was the winner of the children’s category in the Spanish championships so he was thrilled with his double success.
Although the obstacles were not big, he revealed that the corners were very tight and crowded which made the course very difficult.
Teammate Daniel was also delighted.
“When I crossed the finish line, I felt a lot of excitement. Then satisfaction and the feeling of having fulfilled the marked objective. I had been looking for this success for many years. On several occasions I was on the verge of achieving it. This year I trained a lot and improved my career strategy to achieve it. I think I deserved this result, ” he said.
Both received the advice of their T-Riders coach, Marcel González who said he was very satisfied with the results.
Speaking about the future of BMX in the Canary Islands: “We have an enviable quarry. However, I am in favour of the opinion given by the Frenchman Pierre Henri Sauze in the clinic held in the Parque de la Vega. The first thing we must do is bring our circuit to the level that the current tracks in Europe have. You just have to adapt the output to the UCI regulations and make some technical improvements in the jumps. In addition, runners must start to go to tests outside of Spain, which is where you can enjoy the true level of this sport. “
