triathlete Eneko Llanos He disputes this Sunday in the United States the Ironman of Arizona, a test that will put an end to his competition season in 2011.
After achieving third place in the XTerra World Championship in Hawaii, Llanos has decided to compete in this event to close the year with a good taste in his mouth and seek the last victory of the season.
Eneko comes to this race in a "good" state of form, he told Efe, after a "hard preparation" in recent weeks to get his body ready and arrive in the best conditions.
The Vitorian wants to end the year with a victory and return home to rest, after the long American season, with the World Cup in Kona, Maui and now the Ironman and Arizona.
"I hope to end the year with a good taste in my mouth and return home with strength and desire to face the challenges of 2012," the Vitorian wanted.
The race will also serve to begin to score points in order to be able to participate in 2012 again in the Hawaii Ironman, since the Arizona race is worth scoring to win the ticket to the race that focuses the goal of Eneko Llanos each season.
In the test, which will be held in the city of Tempe, Eneko will have rivals such as Dick Bockel, Martin Jensen, Jordan Rapp or Markus Ressler, among others.
There will also be Spanish representation like Nicholas Ward who will also have many options to get into the top 10.
