“I learned a lot today. I lost a lot of time due to the Double Long Lap penalty, but in spite of it, I was able to find a great pace and recover positions little by little. I would’ve like to push a bit harder in the last laps, but overall I’m really happy with the outcome of this race and I’m eager for the next one!”
Adrián Fernández
“Today I keep the positives of the race, because I felt strong and we had a great first half of the race. However, a clash with another rider caused me to have problems with the rear brake from that moment onwards. I’m already looking forward to Barcelona!”
