Clemente Alonso will defend his title in the Extreme Man 113 Menorca
The Eden of triathlon opens its doors once again to all lovers of sport and wild environments. Limited to 500 participants, the second edition of last season's most surprising race also attracts the Spanish elite.
The fittest Spanish triathlete of the moment, Clemente Alonso, will defend his crown on September 25 in Fornells, where the second edition of the Extreme Man 113 Menorca will take place. It will be one of the last goals of the year for the man from Salamanca, and a good opportunity to enjoy the island's surroundings, which he especially appreciates: "I'm coming back because I want to defend my title of course, and because I really liked the event and its landscapes . Last year I was annoyed because I didn't have enough time to visit Menorca.”
But his rivals will not make it easy for him, starting with Xavi Llobet. The Catalan will come with a spirit of revenge, after having abandoned the race due to injury last year, while he led the test on foot. Other Short Distance references will compete for victory, such as David Castro (sub-champion of Spain 2010) and Jose Manuel Tovar (champion of Spain 2008). Although they do not have Clemente's experience in the long distance, his great quality could take them to the top of the podium.
As for Santi Pellejero, the Mataró triathlete will have an outsider role. His swimming power will propel him forward in the crystal clear waters of Fornells Bay, but will he be able to resist the pressure of his pursuers? The answer on September 25.
