The reasons that have led him to carry out this particular sporting achievement responds that his main impulse was his wife: «In 2014, my wife was diagnosed with cancer, as a result of which coincided with the date of a race that I could not attend, I told her that I would do something special for her. That's where this madness came from«.

“Without a doubt, the hardest part was from Villa del Prado to San Martín de Valdeiglesias, since it is the most technical of all. And the least the one from Estremera to Griñón, passing through Aranjuez. The most beautiful was the first Somosierra to El Vellón that circulates through spectacular landscapes of our community, and the one from Manzanares to Lozoya
