Along with every one else the Ikono LaGlisse Academy team had to endure the weather in Portugal at the weekend.

Despite the weather the bright spot of the weekend for the Madrid team’s European Talent Cup riders was 11th place for Luis Miguel Verdugo de la Torre. He finished the rain-soaked first race in 11th position. The achievement is more impressive bearing in mind he started 26th on the grid.

The conditions for race two were better but Verdugo de la Torre was unable to repeat the success of the first race, finishing 22nd.
