Rider Statements

Toni Bou

“Luckily, the error on Zone 1, right after I started, got me into the race. From then on I knew I was in for a tough fight with Adam Raga in the same group and I had to do very well. It has been another great night at the Palau Sant Jordi. I am very happy, and grateful to everyone who has helped me. We have worked very hard, we have done very well and that is the only way to achieve what we have. We are living a dream, and to have reached 30 titles in a row is huge. I also want to congratulate Gabriel Marcelli, because he deserves this second place. He works very hard and he is doing really well”.
