Cup van Melilla

Marco van der Stel wint ETU Triathlon Cup van Melilla!


Bild Presse Marco en Menno na finish

Een daverende verrassing afgelopen zondag. In Spanje schreef Squadra-atleet Marco van der Stel de ETU Thriathlon Cup van Melilla op zijn naam. Na een ijzersterke race kwam de atleet uit Capelle aan den IJssel als eerste over de meet.

In de Melilla verzamelde zich afgelopen zondag een sterk deelnemersveld voor de tweede wedstrijd in de ETU Triathlon Cup. In de Spaanse enclave, gelegen in Marokko aan de Middellandse Zee-kust, waren twee van de deelnemers de Squadra atleten Marco van der Stel en Menno Koolhaas. Voor Van der Stel werd het een memorabele dag.
“Voor de start verwachtte ik dat ik mee kon doen om een plaats bij de eerste tien,” schetst Van der Stel zijn verwachting vooraf. “Wellicht kon ik met een goede dag mezelf bij de beste vijf lopen.” De tegenstand was niet mals. Het deelnemersveld telde een aantal heel sterke lopers. “Dat zie je tegenwoordig bij bijna alle Eurocups,” wist ook Van der Stel.
