It was nice. Unlike last year was very dry and less technical, so it went much louder. I went well, I felt good. I separated from other competitors in the first 5-6 km, then I worked hard to finish. I was excited last year because I wanted to repeat victory. It's my way to show my gratitude to the team that helps me a lot. I think I was stronger this year and that is why I felt it was so hard. I liked how it looked route. everything green, beautiful, sun, warm.

I did track "First Escape" first motorcycle, after I have competed in the past, or helped to organize. It is a very nice route. Forests near arrival are superb. Here they have cut way 2 rabbits. With 20 kilometers before the finish we got a flat, but went on. It was a unique experience. I hope they repeat next year. I felt very well. In terms of the rider was a great route. It was little humidity in the forest which increased adherence. Instead, on field, although it rained day, It was quite dry.
Daniel Osmanovici, TV host, competitor last 3 edition
It was a sensational race. What intrigued me was the speed with which they competed. I saw an average 20-22 km/h, others passed me at high speed. There are an advanced, but still… I've found that it worked very hard. ending in 3 hours, I expected to be closer to Top 500. I finished 632. Yet, I am very happy time obtained. I was and I saw recognition and sensitive areas. For me track was unusually dry and very fast. It does not mean that I'll come back and future issues.
