RACCONTO JOERIE VANSTEELANT – “I’m pretty happy, I really didn’t know how I could do it today before the start, because I’m starting this season my swimming workouts. But I felt comfortable on the bike leg, I even crashed, but I could recovery and push hard on the run. I know that I had to cycle faster than the others to be the first Spanish. I know well Sant Salvador and these roads, I trained here many times as a former cyclist, and I had the feeling that I can finish in the top-5, but the run segment was tough for me. I’m happy, it’s one of the best races I have ever been participating.”
