The victory went to Diego Arguello and Isabel González in the Women's Category.

Diego Arguello Absolute winner commented: «I am very happy that we have returned to the competition, as I believed that this year it would not be possible. To say that both the bike circuit and the race circuit were very fun.

And going directly by bike made the strategy change, because there were people who are very strong on the bike and who in a normal duathlon are not usually in front.

Finally, I believe that the security measures were adequate. The safety distance could be perfectly maintained and always wearing the mask guaranteed extra protection if this was not possible. ”

In the words of Isabel González, female winner, «he liked the bike route a lot and everyone involved in the test; organization, spectators and participants behaved in a very correct way respecting the distances and safety measures making a fun and safe event. "
