|GREAT PERFORMANCE BY YEVGENIYA VYSOTSKA IN SPAIN
The expert Ukrainian climber finished in 6th place the Emakumeen Nafarroako Klassikoa, a one.day race in the Region of Navarra and characterized by a mountain route with very hard climbs. Yevgeniya, in race with her teammates Potokina, Dobrynina, Kiraly and Hajkova was with 5 other attackers: Ashleigh Moolman – Pasio (race winner), Lucy Kennedy, Ane Santesteban, Janneke Ensing and Eider Merino, world level names, resisting until the final km of downhill from San Miguel de Aralar to the finish. Muscle pains did not permit her to fight for the race win.
The Team Manager Dario Rossino says: we are very happy for the team race, the athletes did perform very well. Yevgeniya took a prestigious result, even if due to a shoulder injury before the Giro Rosa Iccrea she has troubles during long races, so she had pains. But this was a brutal race, the final climb was terrible, always above 10% and the whole performance by her and her teammates was very positive.”
The line-up stays in Spain to participate at the Clasica Femenina Navarra in two days and next Saturday at the first San Sebastian Women Classic Race.
