As the start of the "National Cycling and Triathlon Days: values, equality and fair play", held last Sunday at the Juan Antonio Samaranch Auditorium of the Superior Sports Council of Madrid, the 'Cyclist and Triathlete of Gold 2011' awards were presented '.
In this way, two awards were given to Ana Burgos, a reference triathlete at the international level and who started out as a 'biker', to Rosa Bravo, a reference in various cycling disciplines, current Spanish road and duathlete champion, to José Antonio Escuredo , Olympic medalist and an example for young track cyclists, as he currently demonstrates by combining his activity as a runner and as a coach, and Alberto García, an outstanding coach and professor at the INEF.
Juan Carlos Castaño, president of the RFEC, José Hidalgo, president of FETRI, Silvia Ferro, director of the CSD Women and Sports Programs, Begoña Ruiz, spokesperson for the RFEC Women's Cycling Commission, and Cristina Azanza, head of 'Woman and triathlon' participated in this awards ceremony.
For the rest, the Conference was a complete success, with some 60 attendees, with various presentations by Mayte Leruite, from the University of Granada, by Alberto García himself, by Israel González, head of RFEC schools, by Félix García Casas and Cristina Azanza, para-cycling managers in both federations, and Mikel Zabala, coordinator of the 'Prevent to Win' program, to end with a round table.
For Zabala, “there has been a very good response, but more from triathlon than from cycling, and it is something that should lead us to reflect when it has been disseminated in time and presence was facilitated. In any case, the participation has been important and the attendees have been very active and interested”
