Toni Bou

“I was able to tip the race result to my side in the second and the last laps, but the riding wasn’t good. I didn’t feel very well during the first lap, as my back hurt a bit due to a crash during training. Despite not feeling comfortable, I did feel better as the race went by. I’m very happy for this result, I will need to make a good effort next week, working with my back to be able to arrive in good form to England.”

“I’m not very happy with this fifth place. I was among the top positions up to mid-race, but then there was a misunderstanding with the time they gave and I lost the podium by a very little margin. I felt very comfortable on the bike, I did well, but I’m not happy with everything that happened. I’m still third overall and with four races to go nothing is decided. I think I’m on the right path.”

Jaime Busto

“I didn’t feel very comfortable in the zones where there was some mud. It’s not my favourite surface, that’s for sure. At the beginning I was a bit clumsy and I could only get one zero in the last zone. During the second lap I felt better on the bike, but it wasn’t enough. As the race went by, the zones didn’t improve.”
