Sara Antón’s third place in the Madrid Gymkana Championship in the children’s category

11 June, 2019

The town of Coslada in Madrid, as part of its annual fairs and festivals, hosted this past Sunday a new edition of the Trofeo Amistad de Escuelas, sixth scale of the Cycling Academy Calendar of the Federación Madrileña de Ciclsimo which, on this occasion, hosted the regional championship of gymkana. In the discipline of the skill on the bicycle, so relevant in the formative field and the scope of the schools, the member of the Plaza Éboli Cycling Academy Sara Antón hung the bronze medal. Daniel Sánchez, for his part, finished seventh in the men’s event.

In the neighbourhood of Puerto de la población, and in an edition that meant nothing less than the 42nd, Antón finished behind Inés Méndez (CC Nieves) and Naiara Barriga (UC Fuenlabrada). Méndez completed the circuit in less than a minute, Barriga in 1:07.53 and Antón in 1:11.58; none of the three participants received a time penalty. It was not the case of Irene del Puerto, the other member of the participating Foundation, who concluded fourth: Del Puerto completed the layout in 1:07.25, but received 20 seconds of penalty.

A good performance of the women of the Plaza Éboli Cycling Academy, always very outstanding in the different events of the Madrid calendar in which they have taken part, always with an important group representation of the structure of the Alberto Contador Foundation, throughout May and this beginning of June. Although the fundamental objective was always fulfilled with more than enough: the fun with the sport practice. In the 41st Trophy Patronato Municipal de Deportes de Fuenlabrada Irene Pardo hung a bronze in the female test alevín. And a week later, in the 26th Children’s Spring Trophy of the City Council of Fuenlabrada (the population of southern Madrid hosted tests twice), although in children’s category, Sara Anton touched the podium finishing in fourth position.

In the last edition of the Torrejón de Ardoz Cycling Grand Prix, the commitment of schools with which Pardo and Antón started in June in their respective categories would be specified. In the male test for beginners Álvaro Martínez and Tomás Franco managed to finish in fourth and fifth place, while Daniel Sánchez Reina finished fifth in infantile male.
