Cabedo gets his own race

Fallen cyclist Víctor Cabedo will be honoured with a race in his name this spring.

The "I Trofeo Víctor Cabedo", a race open to junior teams, will be staged this May over four days, on a recorrido yet to be decided upon. The race will "aim to pay homage to the cyclist from Onda, as well as contribute to the growth of grassroots cycling", and will see the light of day thanks to the support of the city council of Onda, Víctor's town of birth.

"Víctor would not have wanted to be paid homage to", said brother José in a press release. "He was always saying he was no one, that he was just getting started. But he never refused to lend a hand when we were seeking support for youth cycling, so I think he would have liked this idea".
