Now he shows up again in Hawaii wanting to improve his performance. We have asked him how he faces his participation

"This time I trained less than the time I participated in 2017 although with the difference that this time I have been less stressed, since in 2017 I had a lot of pressure for work reasons.

This year I have trained less, but with better quality and with better numbers, but it does not mean that I can do better than two years ago.”

"I come to get a little thorn, since the first day of competition I had a problem with the changes of the bike from the beginning of the segment and I had to go with a small plate and a medium sprocket the remaining 135 km where I suffered a puncture in the tubular.

In addition, on the second day I played twice more and doing fifth on that occasion was great.

We are adapted to the island, we arrived last Sunday and I train them well, I have adapted to the heat better than the other year.”
