2022 series is go!
Just short of nine months since the Spanish town of Vic hosted the 2021 UCI Trials World Championship, the same venue is now the scene of the opening round of the 2022 Trials World Cup, which will include both the men’s and women’s categories. The series was first run back in 2000.
Situated seventy kilometres north of Barcelona, the historical town of Vic is home to almost fifty thousand people with plenty of trials fans amongst the community given the area’s long association with this pedal powered discipline.
The Mas de Bigues Cycling Circuit will be at the centre of the action with a packed programme spread over three days – Friday, Saturday and Sunday. At the sharp end of the competition, it is the Men Elite 20” who will get things underway proper, with their quarter-finals taking place from 14.00hrs on Friday.
Saturday morning it is the turn of the Men Elite 26” at 9.00hrs followed by the Women Elite semi-finals at 15.00hrs. All the quarterfinals and semi-finals will consist of two laps of five sections.
Sunday sees the action step up a gear with the semi-finals of the Men Elite 20” at 9.00hrs ahead of the same round for Men Elite 26” at 11.00hrs. After lunch the three finals come in rapid succession, with the top six in each class fighting for the medals over one lap of five sections. The finals order is the Women Elite at 15.15hrs, Men Elite 20” at 16.45hrs with the Men Elite 26’’ closing out the weekend from 18.45hrs.
The Jitsie factory team will be out in force and will be well represented by:
Alejandro Montalvo – Men Elite 20”
Adam Morewood – Men Elite 20”
Marti Vayreda – Men Elite 26”
Adding to the occasion, Alejandro and Adam will ride their 2023 pre-production factory Varial Race bikes this weekend. All riders will be kitted out in new colourways from the Jitsie Ravetron collection.
Club Jitsie will be in attendance over all three days bringing you all the latest action and news live as it happens.
