Eneko arrives at this race in "good" shape, he told Efe, after "tough preparation" in recent weeks to get his body ready and arrive in the best conditions.
The man from Vitoria 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 in 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 man from Vitoria wished.

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.
