Pascuet makes history in Santigosa

pascuet_340 has claimed victory in the 40th edition of the Three Days of Santigosa, thus adding his seventh victory and breaking the record of victories in this mythical race, ahead of the great Toni Gorgot, who until now was the benchmark with six victories to his credit.

In second place was the World Championship rider Takahisa Fujinami, who was third until the second day and on the final day was able to overtake a brilliant former World Cup player such as Gabriel Reyes, who remained in the lead on his Ossa until the final day, where a heavy penalty prevented him from continuing to fight for victory.


The statements of the riders are an accumulation of praise for the great role of the organization (MC Abadesses), marking areas that have not been done for 30 years and putting a special color to a mythical race that precedes the biggest of the year: the SSDT. These will be held at the beginning of May, as you well know.
