“I’m very happy because today we finally took a big step forward. At the beginning and halfway through the race I felt comfortable and I was riding really well, pushing hard. The last part was a bit trickier, but I tried to work as much as I could to maintain the position. I want to thank my team, because in the warm-up we still had some issues. However, we found the solution and had the bike ready for the race. We are definitely on the right track, I’m motivated and looking forward to continuing to work in the next few contests.”
