The highlight of the event was the performance of young Spaniard Miguel Guerrero. Not only by setting the fastest lap of the contest, but also by finishing 4th in the all-around, which earned him the Wildcard for the Red Bull District Ride in Nuremberg on September 2-3.
“It was an incredible weekend even if the first days of riding I didn’t feel comfortable, at the end I motivated myself and I managed to get the best out of myself. I still can’t believe I finished 4th with the level that was there and beat some of my childhood idols. I’m very happy to have won the wildcard and I can’t wait to go to Nuremberg and have fun with all the riders! –Miguel Guerrero
