Toni Ferreiro (XMS Racing)
The weather was threatening rain from days ago and everyone was carrying his tires with spikes in their vans knowledgeable about what to expect on Saturday, but the thing was not so, and except for some very light rain shower at noon did not only act presence, if not we could enjoy a wonderful afternoon of DH.
The lack of rain and that this will happen by Marin made the previous days on the sleeves timed the appearance of the ground were excellent, with a very good grip.
The circuit began in an area free of vegetation, where trees were cut down almost entirely, which made the fast withereth wind field and in turn this was somewhat lacking grip loose and the rest of the circuit. After the first section we entered the dense forest area, very very nice part of the circuit at the same time fun, where riders were comfortable and did not hesitate to provide entertainment to a grateful audience that packed the mount marinense.
Aaron Caballero (School Riders Team)
Jano Caamaño (Singletrack-Intense-KpSport)
As for the race itself, had a common denominator that leads him to be in the final races of the Open Gallego not only but also in the Taça races in our neighboring Portugal, and that common denominator is called Toni Ferreiro. He came to Marin with the confidence that give the seconds it inflicted more pointers riders Portugal, did not disappoint and scored a great time in both races timed 2.28.904 being the better of the last race. After him a recovered Jano Caamano, who came to Marin for his first race of the year, after a rough season with a shoulder injury that left him KO for the first tests of the Championships. Yet this year showed that goes for all and after a first round with a fall a few meters from the exit, marked a second round of scandal, ending a few time 2.1 seconds behind Toni, being also the first U23. The third occupant of the podium was very clear who was going to be, and although this time it took a little more Aaron Caballero, took third place not without leaving his spectacular driving style which delighted the public in Marin, Aaron ended also second in the U23 category. The podium in this category would complete one Gabri Alonso always spectacular.
In Sub23 Jano Caamaño beats the fastest time, followed by Aaron Caballero and Gabriel Alonso in third place.
The Junior Category winner was the Portuguese Fernando Jorge Silva with a time of 2.41.146, followed by Yonatan González and Cesar Sánchez.
At Master 30 Manuel Verdía was the favourite, but the local José Montenegro raced home, Verdía took the first place with a time if 2.42.512, with Borja Caneiro in second place and José Montenegro third.
Master 40 was won by Marcos Araujo, Senior by José Manuel Tomé and cadet by Andres Quintela.
