"Sweet and sour taste after today's withdrawal in Dubai.
I have felt centered, strong, fighter on the bike, I have enjoyed as I had not done for a long time but it has been to set foot on the ground to start the race on foot and stay stuck. Yesterday afternoon I was already touched with a slight lumbalgia, I do not recommend 1.9kms swimming and 90 hard and intense bike kms as treatment.
I am still excited, it has only been a small stumble from which I will recover soon."
