Mountaineering skier Marta Garcia is on a roll. After very good performances in Vertical Race Spanish Championships and early World Cup events, the skier of Elan Junior Team has got the 3rd place overall and 1st in the Under-23 in Individual Spanish Championships in Spain, held on Sunday in the surroundings of Boí Taüll Resort.
The heavy snowfall on Saturday forced organizers to design an alternative track and on Sunday the race could not begin until 11 in the morning. Finally, racers enjoyed a sunny day with great powder.
In men, the winner was the catalan skier Marc Pinsach followed by catalans Nil Cardona and Marc Solà. In ladies, the podium was also 100% occupied by catalan athletes. Mireia Miró and Marta Riba were the top two ahead of Elan’s Team member Marta Garcia.
World renowned ski manufacturer Elan has reached an agreement with Italian ski racer Massimiliano Blardone, 34, to be his exclusive supplier of World Cup skis and service over the next two seasons. We are determined to return to the top of the World Cup podium where both Elan and Max used to be in the past.
