Victor del Corral, European Duathlon Champion

In the test held on Sunday at 17.00:XNUMX Spanish time, in the Irish town of Limerick, the Spanish Victor Manuel del Corral has been proclaimed Sub-Champion of Europe in Elite Category, with a time of 01: 40: 36.

The first classified was the French Nicolás Benoit, 01:40:21, and the third position for the Australian Raphael Baugh with a time of 01:40:41. Portuguese Lino Barruncho, who is 3rd in the European, entered fourth.

The test was carried out together with the Sub 23 category, in which the first classified was the Portuguese Miguel Arraiolos, with a time of 01:40:49, 2nd Matthew Gunby with a time of 01:40:52 and third position for the Italian Davide Uccellari, 01:40:57.

In the test we have also had the presence of Oscar Vicente Rodríguez who has achieved the 4th position in his category, Sub 23, with a time of 01: 44: 10

The race started at a high pace, but not impossible to follow, Victor del Corral remained at the tail of the group reserving energy, from this kilometer he picked up the pace. At the first transition, a group of 10 duathletes arrived, among which 3 were of the Under-23 category.

The bike circuit was completely flat, with long straights, in which trying to escape was really difficult. There were some attempts, among them the duatleta tried it a couple of times, to test the rivals and seeing that it was not possible, he preferred to save, stay in the group and reserve for the last leg on foot.

Del Corral managed to start third in the second transition, quickly taking the lead and running only until practically the end of the first lap, where Frenchman Nicolas Benoit caught up with him. From there, the first position was very disputed, both duathletes stood side by side trying to take each other off the hook. With just 600 meters to go, Nicolás printed a great rhythm, Del Corral thought about attacking a few meters after a short straight uphill and before entering the finish straight but he could not reach the pace that Nicolás imposed, remaining in 2nd position, just 15 seconds from the first place.

According to statements by Victor del Corral, current European Duathlon Sub Champion: “I entered the goal really close and for a long time I thought I could win the race, but it couldn't be. I am also very happy with the result, it is the second year that I have managed to be on the podium in a European Championship and it is something that a few years ago I could not have imagined ”
