Spain smiles. It seems like a political program of dubious sincerity, but nothing is further from the reality linked to his cycling. The future has arrived, with the National Championship showing that the new boys are the reality. If García Pierna took a step in time, the of Carlos Rodríguez on the road is stellar. Of those who knock on the door of the best. Champion of Spain and consecration in the world elite.

His end of 2021 and beginning of 2022 indicated giant things. Installed in Ineos -one of the best teams on the planet- he assumed responsibility with flying colors. He just needed to win. And in half a year it can be said that this step has been completed. Because it’s not just good performances anymore, now it’s perseverance and competition against the squad leaders.

In the Itzulia a sample after a phenomenal escape with Marc Soler and in the National the second. In the best way, with an attack that no one was able to continue. And some legs that knock on the door of the three-week races. It may not be in the Tour, but LaVuelta will have the great hope for Spain.

A spectacular outcome

It was a tremendous National. The race seemed to lead to five men going to play the rojigualda in the decisive kilometers. In a spectacular way, because they tensed descending the port. The tone of the whole day, in which names like Mikel Nieve, the incombustible Óscar Sevilla or the recently signed by Burgos-BH José Manuel Díaz Gallego had tried it, changed towards the best. Some in which the always was discarded full Izagirre and Rubén Fernández, due to a fall and a mechanical breakdown, respectively.

For the gold and after a crazy descent he went aheadn Roger Adriá -seeking a gold National for his Kern Pharma-, Juan Ayuso, more fit than in the time trial, Carlos Rodríguez, Álex Aranburu and Jesús Herrada. To summarize, four boys of the new generation and a veteran expert in the test, like the Herrada from La Mancha.

They understood each other until the decisive rise. Logical maneuver to rule out other big names. The difference always grew, and prevented, for example, Caja Rural with Barceló could close it. But the Navarrese did not give up and the final ascent began as a block. The group got together and Pedrero, Lastra, Okamika or Ropero grew in sheet metal options.

in the port, Ayuso wanted to have an intention, but Movistar did not allow parties. Pedrero shooting for Aranburu at all times. Until Herrada repeated the movement, and selected in favor of Ayuso, Rodríguez and Aranburu. Again the same although Adrià no longer arrived there.

Missing 1.7 to crown Carlos Rodríguez gave his coup de grâce. He eliminated Ayuso and forced Herrada and Aranburu to almost impossible. Not even in the descent, a terrain in which two men like the pursuers have experience and knowledge to be able to come back at all times. Nothing is further from reality.

Carlos Rodríguez managed the end comfortably. Taking time to show off, celebrate and smile. Spain, as a whole too. And it is not a political program, it is the hope of cycling in which the Andalusian wants to have a leading role. His name has been at the top of the charts for a long time.
