P2P 2019: Ancin is perfect and a rewarding breakaway for Beddiaf

Spain's Maite Ancin and Frenchman Nolan Beddiaf won the 2019 P2P race held in Spain last weekend.

The P2P organization innovated this year adding another race to the event. Already considered as the hardest marathon in the world with a hard course linking the cities of Pamplona and Puente la Reina, this year’s edition also had a 21km race the day before the 42km making it a two-stage event a bit like in cycling. The winner of the 2019 P2P was going to be the best skater in the cumulative of both races. 

Maite Ancin perfect from start to finish 
Spanish skater Maite Ancin won both races of the weekend. On Saturday in the 21k, victory was played in the final sprint and Ancin managed to beat Colombian Aura Quintana and Spanish Maialen Onate at the line. Sunday, Ancin once again won but with a different strategy, winning the 42k with a strong breakaway. At the line, French skaters Marine Lefeuvre and Chloé Geoffroy took second and third behind Ancin who confirmed her overall victory.

Beddiaf strongest man on 42k
Reigning marathon world champion from France Nolan Beddiaf won the 2019 P2P men’s race. On saturday it was German skater Felix Rijhnen who won it. He edged out crowd favorite Patxi Peula at the line to claim the first stage win. Peula was second and Elton de Souza third. The next day on 42k, Beddiaf was definitely the strongest skater as he finished thirty seconds before everybody. Patxi Peula once again took second place and Félix Rijhnen was third. This big win added to his fifth place in the sprint group the day before awarded Beddiaf the overall victory.
