Happy for the victory

Iván Tejero was exultant at the end of the test. “It is the eighth year that I do this race, I know it by heart. I come from training in the Pyrenees to the fullest, I didn't know how I was going to get there physically. I pushed very hard on the bike to try to get it resolved, then in the race on foot I got quite an advantage, groping a lot, Stojanovic almost came behind and caught me, but I adjusted well and I got the victory”. In addition, he recognized that this test is one of his favorites. "I love it, whenever I can I take part every year, because it is a triathlon that I love, beautiful, it has the essence of what I like, Cuenca is one of my favorites".
