«With yesterday’s breakdown David approached me to the jersey and today I didn’t have much margin. Today I couldn’t let almost any of them move, so I kept an eye on the second and third”, stated the winner of the ŠKODA Titan Series Almería just after finishing this great adventure.

His victory in the stage has been a pleasant surprise, which has allowed him to live the dream finish: «I did not expect to reach the finish line first and take the stage. With the Titan I have always had a thorn in my side, so I am very happy to end the year with this victory.”
