Patxi Cía (MSC Bikes Team), closer to the Lezaun's record.

The MSC Bikes’ biker from Navarra won yesterday in the fourth scoring race of the “Diario de Navarra” MTB’s Open. The Muniain’s circuit, in very bad condition because of the abundant rains, was the land where nearly 120 bikers fought for the victory. Patxi started leader from the beginning and after the first lap, he was twenty seconds ahead of the duo formed by Latasa and Serrano. This remained until the third lap in which Serrano and Latasa, taking advantage of their numerical superiority, took Patxi just 1 Km before the end and with a strong headwind. But in the next uphill, the hardest one of the circuit, Patxi made ​​a strong attack that could not be answered by Latasa and Serrano. This way, Patxi won and stalk the leadership of Serrano, who finished second. The next two races will be critical to determine if Patxi can match the record of Robert Lezaun. The next race will be in the extremely hard Acedo’s circuit.
