Today it seemed that the race could be more complicated but in the end it was quite easy,” Bou says. “Victory in these easy trials is morally very important and, as I said, my rival’s level made me improve mine. I want to thank my parents, my girlfriend and the whole team for their support to get this title. Thank you very much to all of you.”
