In some moments I have felt hung, without references, but I have known how to continue. From the beginning the Danes were at the head of the race, they have been strong and at no time have I thought that I could get to catch them. Alone in practically the entire circuit, there have been hard moments where a thousand things have crossed my mind, despite this I have known that I had to be strong and that it was really worth fighting to reach the finish line and be in the Top10 of the European Championship. . I'm happy with this result, now it's time to rest for a few days "
