Everything is ready for the next June 29 Saturday We can see a new test of the WTS circuit. Javier Gómez Noya 5 times world champion, Fernando Alarza, third in the World ranking and Mario Mola 3 times World Champion consecutively head the triarmada in the WTS Montreal, where they will also be Vicente Hernández, Antonio Serrat y Carolina Routier
With the absence of the leader Vicent Luis, leave the options open so that both Fernando Alarza as Javier Gómez Noya try to get the victory and the first place in the world. The opponent to beat will be the South African Henri Schoeman which is second in the ranking with 73 points of advantage over Alarza and 106 over Noya. The young British Alex Yee will not participate either.
It will also be necessary to take into account Richard Murray or the Norwegians Blummenfelt, Iden y Stornes among others.
Mario Mola will seek to improve the position of the past tests and return to the podium in the sprint distance after three poor results. It is currently 13º in the Ranking
Alarza and Noya with options to become World Cup leader
The victory of a world series gives 1.000 points to the winner, so if Fernando Alarza wins in this event, he would be the leader surpassing Schoeman. In the event that Noya or Alex Yee will win, Alarza would be the leader whenever he is second and Schoeman fourth.
In the case of Javier Gómez Noya, he would only become leader if he won the test and Schoeman was third.
