Just a couple of weeks ago from triatlonnoticias.com we interviewed the Italian sportsman Roberto Lendaro, fond of spending long periods between Granada and Madrid, with the reason of his participation in the Decairoman of Mexico.

Conscious unconsciousness ... "These races are extremely physical but the mental force factor is longer and in this field I feel trained"

The athlete of 57 years, passionate about long distance, can already say that he is "FINISHER" in this hard test that consisted of the sum of 10 Ironman distance races.

"There have been two really intense sports and emotional weeks. The race was particularly difficult because I decided to participate at the last minute, so I was not properly trained, but I knew I could do it"Roberto Lendaro states.

"The experience of Doubledeca and the "conscious unconsciousness" did the rest. These races are extremely physical but the mental force factor is longer and in this field I feel "trained"«.

"The course of the race was a wonderful park, but at 1.800 meters high, with extreme weather (the sweltering heat of the day and very cold and humid at night). Some sections of the bike lane had asphalt in poor condition (I punched 12 times ...). However, the environment of the race was magnificent despite the extreme conditions ... where I sometimes slept 2 hours a day. On the subject of food I was lucky, because despite being vegan there were many vegetarian dishes so I had no problem in this aspect"
