Awesome weekend and lot of excitement in this VIII RALLY 12H CLIMBING TERRADETS, since almost the end of the competition it looked like the foreign teams would won.
At the end, the team of the shop “Goma 2”, Víctor Sans and Ignasi Artigas from Lleida won with only 4 points and 10 m more than the french mixed team formed by Camille Marot and Sylvain Thiavaud.
The third position in the general classification was for the mixed team of the shop “Evasion Sports”, formed by Fanny Barreda and Dani Celma. This is the first time mixed teams are at the podium of general classification, which means the high level of the wall climbing women.
In men category, the second position was for the team of the shop “Foracorda”, formed by Félix Sánchez and Xisco Cifré, followed by the shop “Vents” with the team of Carlos Tudela and Jorge Palacios, who were the first position of the senior category. These two climber are a nice example of “is not because of the years but of the weight” as mentioned in the ads.
In the women’s category, it was clear in the first long that the french team formed by Juliette Marot and Marie Cabrera was not competitor to the croatian team formed by Inga and Suncica. The inspired croatian climbers have been also the winners during the last years of the “Speed Climbing” at the “International Climbers Meeting de Paklenica” in Croatia.

Due to the good experience of that decision, 3-people teams will be welcome in next editions of the rally.
