So exciting! It’s a tough race, very difficult. Very difficult.
It’s not a normal ultra race.
If you finish this race [you’re] very tough, the very long climbs up and do – so big – also the altitude,
and also the technical… it’s so technical my god! Unbelievable. It’s not just one or two sections. Maybe just one or two sections are runable, other sections are so technical. You need to focus the whole way, and your feet are suffering, so those things make this race so tough.
If people can finish this race, they are really a champion!
The good thing is the weather – so good – otherwise more difficult.
I really slowed down on the last section. I really wanted to take it easy a little bit. So tough, I’m so tired.
Very beautiful race course. I think the stage race is fun.
