He was very strong and he is the just winnerHe also commented that, nevertheless, "I am happy because I have gained a lot of experience, especially on a bike. Here there is a lot of level and they have given one stick after another, attacking a lot. They left the turns flying, with an average higher than 40 kilometers per hour insurance ".

In the absence of a kilometer "the flat begins to look strong and Oscar seems to smell it. I decide to be smart and keep the second place, since behind Antonie came a few with the knife between his teeth. In the absence of 400 meters I try to give a final attack but the flat does not allow it. "He reached Martin, and they ran together until with one kilometer left the Galician changed his pace to go for the victory. he focused on keeping the second place and defending it from Duvivier, third.
