"On Sunday 17th april it took place the Open Asturiano de Descenso 2013 at Deva Gijón:  DH Deva 2013.

cabecera javier martinezThe circuit was short, about a minute and a half, pretty fast and despite having quite pedaling several areas, there were also areas of roots, cambers and several rocks linked to the circuit were quite technical.
The competition began on Sunday but on Saturday afternoon, many riders were on track to train some drawn up around the circuit on foot, until at 18:00 am, a truck started making lifts organization. On Saturday I made some 8 or 9 downs and feelings for Sunday were pretty good.

The competition officially began Sunday at 9:00 began the lifts but at that time there were no people, it seems that on Saturday night gave much of himself, perhaps too but surely this benefited us who woke up early to enjoy one morning session.

Throughout the morning did not stop riders appear, but thanks to the 4 trucks of the organization to the lifts, was not expect any type of glue. The circuit started breaking, some fell cambers but we must congratulate the organization and rapid intervention to fix them and they were ready for the race.
With about 6 or 7 downs that all morning I went to lunch with my teammates and other friends. Admittedly that is the positive side of racing, reacquaint with friends and enjoy the company of colleagues who enjoy the DH.
