#37 AUGUSTO FERNANDEZ
“It was a tough race in which I had to manage things on the fly. The conditions of the track and the pace kept changing, but we did well. I saw that I was stronger than other riders and I decided to attack and wait for the best time to move into first position. I’m very happy with the result and all that remains is to continue in the same way.”
