After the good results in the first round of the World Cup in Austria two weeks ago, the Spanish trial team (14 athletes) went to the city of Moudon (Switzerland) to compete at the European Championship 2018.
On Friday at 3:00 pm the Elite semifinals began, where only the top 8 qualified would go to the final. Tarrés did not start ver good and made an error in section 3 and finished with a total of 7 points. The sections were very easy, it was not allowed to do a slightest mistake to make it to the finals. Tarrés was tenth in the first round so he was out of the final.
This past weekend the first trial of the UCI Trials World Cup of 2018 was held in Vöcklabruck (Austria). It was the first international event of the season where the best riders in the world gave an awesome show. Pol Tarrés ( Scorpio-Vaude team ), did the fourth position, being his best result ever in a world cup.
Tarrés did not have to go through the qualifying phase since he is in the TOP10 of the world ranking, so he went straight to the semifinals. The semifinals are disputed by a total of 25 pilots, the best 15 of the qualifying phase plus the top 10 of the world ranking.
