The best result of the weekend was the third place of Miguel Parra in the career of the Challenge 80. The Gerundense rider, 12-year -old managed to climb the crate Alcarràs after a weekend of intense work in which the biggest challenge was the development of the bikes this season. To do this, the team had the exclusive support technicians RMU, which is why the School Team Cabreiroá team is the only official from the Italian brand.
Both Parra as his teammate Joan Uviña ( also 12 years) staged a career low to high, with a poor start which forced them to gain positions. After contact with the second group of pursuers, the two young riders chased the lead group and alternated in the podium positions with rivals , crossing the line in third and fifth, respectively. Parra made it to 1.786 seconds behind the winner, after setting a best lap of one tenth round quickly and Uvina to the first 2,470.
In Pre Moto3 category, Jeremy Alcoba and Borja Sánchez also had to do their best with the technical development of the bike. For this reason, the third on the grid on Saturday achieved by Borja Sánchez invited optimism.
