A dry and dusty 6.5 Kilometer Circuit under the spanish sun in Banyolès.

Encouraging, is the word which best describes the very beginning of the season. Jordan Sarrou's 6th place confirms his place in the elite of the sport. 

The U23 riders ran with their elders. Thomas Bonnet finished in 23rd place in the scratch classification, with Axel Zingle finished in 26th position. In his first year outside the junior ranks, Mathis Azzaro came home 54th from a field of 200 riders.
