2014 Trophy of the 3 Tracks: Valence d'Agen (2/3)
Second day in Valence d'Agen
The bitumen of the road drains off the excess water, the grip is good, so that rain wheels are not indispensable for all skaters. A lot of MPC Storms can be spotted at the feet of the competitors, but also a good number of Boom Firms.
Senior Women's Elimination Race
Sabine Berg and Katharina Rumpus (Powerslide) lead the elimination race in front of Juliette Pouydebat (Pibrac RE) and Aurélie Duchemin (ALC Bouguenais). The striking event of the race remains the fall of Justine Halbout (2APN Avon) during the final bolt. She hits the ground with her hip, then her head before being evacuated. A minor fall, very fortunately, and Justine is back on skates the next day.
Senior Men's Elimination Race
As for the men, Paxti Peula Cabello (EOSkates) rises in power, showing that he is the leading skater of the EOSkates team. He wins the elimination race in front of Alex Cujavante (PKC, Colombia), alone but very mobile and winged within the pack. Once more, Diogo Marreiros (Lagos) manages to climb on the podium for Portugal in seizing the 3rd place. He found great support with his team mate Martyn Dias (Lagos, Protugal, 5th). Nola Beddiaf (EOSkates) gets the 4th place.
