Rafa Tibau Roura enters the Spanish trials history as being the first 26″ rider to qualify for the Super Final in a World Cup event. It is his best result at this level to date. And it is certain it is not going to stop there as he is only 21 years of age.
“The competition on Saturday was very hard due to the rain, but we studied the sections well to get a maximum result. The next day the weather was better during the finals. Participating in the Super Final was a great experience. This is why I have trained so hard and I will continue so I can ride other Super Finals. I would like to thank my sponsors that help me live my dream.”
Here is the official press release (in Spanish).
