Team Bahrain McLaren is proud to celebrate the victory of Pello Bilbao at the Spanish ITT Championship today.
The 30-year old talented rider clocked a winning time of 1h03’32” on the 45km demanding course from Cazorla to La Iruela, beating Luis Leon Sanchez (+36”) and Gorka Izagirre (+1’36”) and taking his first National Time Trial title, after he was second last year.
Pello Bilbao comments: “This victory was one of the goals of this season. It wasn’t easy at all to take it, as it was very hot with almost 40 degrees and it was really hard facing more than an hour effort. But I came here to take the first ITT victory and I was motivated. Although some difficulties I was focussed and motivated until the finish line. Everything went right and as we planned”.
“I dedicate this win to all Team Bahrain McLaren. It was the perfect scenery after the lockdown and all the hard period we went through, as we were forced to stay at home and try to stay motivated. A huge thank you to our SD and coaches that supported us. And now I’m even more motivated for the next great aim we have as a team that is Le Tour de France”.
