Javier Orellana took his fourth victory in five race today at Portimao in Portugal as the Pata European Junior Cup fifth round race took place at the Autodromo Internacional do Algarve.

The 10-lap race was red-flagged following a first corner incident involving two riders, neither of whom was seriously injured. In the restart, Orellana did not have it easy and enjoyed a six-lap battle with pole-sitter Sam Wilford and local Portuguese wildcard rider Pedro Nuno.

However, the 17-year-old Spaniard timed his move to perfection going into the tight turn five on the final lap and was able to hold off his two challengers to take his fourth win and fifth podium finish of the season.

Wilford finished second, cleverly drafting Nuno out of the final turn and onto the long drag for the line, finishing just 0.02s ahead of the Portuguese. In the FIM Europe Women’s European Cup, meanwhile, New Zeland’s Avalon Biddle was once again victorious.
