Copa Catalunya Banyoles : Victory for Victor Koretzky Thomas Litscher second
After 2016, 2017, 2018, Victor Koretzky posts a fourth success at the Copa Catalunya in Banyoles.
– Victor Koretzky
“We were there with Thomas (Litscher) and Milan (Vader) in the front positions.
It’s always reassuring to find yourself in a position of strength like this. We know that if one of us had a difficult passage, another could take over. We are stronger together and we proved that we are a very strong team.
We had a very intense week and I felt that I was perhaps lacking a little freshness.
I waited until the last moment to try my luck. This is my fourth victory here, this circuit is unusual, but I like it. Now towards Andora, and next week in Italy. I am going to do the circuit for the first time, and the field is going to be very tough.”
“A great day”
– Thomas Litscher
“We had a great day with the team!
I’m really happy with my feelings on the bike. Victor was faster on the last descent and I’m very happy for him!
We had a great week here in Banyoles with the whole team, we were very busy with the tests and the first tests of the material, but it is in these kinds of moments that we build on what will follow for the rest of the season.”
