Sardinia Grand Slam Day 1

We wish Martinez all the best and hopefully see him on the water again soon! The slow start wasn’t a sign of things to come though as competition in both the Men’s and Women’s Draw was fierce! Round 4 was the losers round and the last chance for all the riders to land themselves a place in the final rounds. Both Tonijuan and Neto joined Val Garat and Cloetens advancing through to round five. In the Women’s draw it was both Taabbel and Novotna both showing a more consistent heat taking out Soloveykina and Whitely respectively. Round …
