«What career was Ironman Italy 👌 … Everything was going well with 40 km on the bike and still in search of a podium, when in the narrow streets of Bertinoro I flirted with an age group that was on the first lap 🤦(I.e.

I went back up to my SHIV to continue, but my bike was pretty bad (later I saw that the frame was also broken) and it was inescapable 🤯.

I will be honest, the last 2 years have been difficult for me, I could not have overcome them without my family and friends ???? But man, I'm tired of making lemonade big!

In the next ... my big goal in the future is @patagonmanxtri in December with some races of @ironmantri 70.3 and @challengecapetowntri in the previous period, I want that great moment!

Peace out man ️ # trainhardraceeasy #nevergiveup 👊🏁 »
