Garcia takes fifth Spanish road title

In the time trial she missed a new Spanish title with one second, in the road race Mavi Garcia gave it another shot to claim a new title.

In the road race over 122,6 kilometres Mavi Garcia did all she could to make the race hard. After a fury of attacks she was in a select lead group. With 30 kilometres to go Garcia launched another attack. The Liv Racing TeqFind rider took a small gap and kept fighting to take more advantage on the two chasers. Garcia managed to gain a minute lead, which was more then enough to take her fifth title on the road.

“I am very happy with this achievement. In the time trial I could push the numbers that I normally can. So that made me a little uncertain for the road race, but luckily this race went much better. I tried to make the race as hard as I could. That worked out well in the finale and I finish solo to take my fifth title. It is great to have this special national champion jersey for another year. It makes me very happy”, Garcia told after the race.
