Specially the track, the track is authentic MTB and a competition with high level.
It’s been a really tough season; my strength is not the strongest, because the season feels really long. That means I will have to push with all my strength and finish the season with this competition.
Obviously because I won the last edition I’m one of the favorites, but that does not give me any type of pressure, I will give it my all and I will enjoy it.
Logically, in a preolympic year a lot of riders are on the hunt for UCI points, but from my point of view the level is similar to other years. Which is very good, by the way.
It’s one more day, but the long stages are a bit shorter. This means the amount of hours will be similar to previous years. It’s a good argument to enjoy MTB one more day.
Come prepared for everything. In the same stage you might find various types of tracks. Pay close attention to food and to the maintenance of your bike, because as it’s a stages competition it’s tough for the rider but also for the bike.
