The Catalan triathlete Xavi Llobet has won the Valencia Triathlon this morning, which has held its second edition in the waters of the Juan Carlos I Royal Navy and in part of the Formula 1 urban circuit layout and the City of Arts.
Today's winner, team winner in 2010 and Olympian in Athens, has imposed his might on the foot race, after suffering a problem in the last transition when he left the bicycle to start the third test. This mishap has caused you to lose valuable seconds and has involved a claim. For this reason, the brand of Llobet is not yet official, who has dropped to the ground after finishing the test exhausted and has been treated by some strong muscle tugs.
In second place has finished the manisero Víctor Candel, one of the revelations of the Olympic triathlon of Valencia, since he has surpassed the other top favorite, the triathlete of Antella Jordi Pascual, third in the national 'ranking' of this sport.
A total of 2.200 athletes have participated between yesterday and today in the different modalities of the Valencia Triathlon, which this year has managed to double the number of registered triathletes.
At eight in the morning, when dozens of young people left the discos in the port area and the beach, the triathletes of the Olympic category were already in the water to cover 1.500 meters in the dock. In this first part of the competition, the swimmer from Burjassot has stood out Emilio Aguayo, which in the end was left out of the podium due to plantar fasciitis. Then they have done the 40 km by bicycle and have finished with the 10 km of running.
