This last round in Galicia was very important, as the points had to be multiplied by three, which made it even more exciting, especially for the riders who had their sights set on the final classification of the championship. In addition, the participants found that during the days of competition, the rain fell relentlessly, leaving a very muddy and slippery terrain.

"I had a complicated weekend due to very difficult race conditions, with the rain falling and broken chronos, with deep undermines, roots, etc., so it was difficult to go fast, despite this I end up happy, because despite the complications, the times I set were good. I finished the year winning all the races of the championship, so I am very happy to get a new title. I would like to thank everyone in the Rieju team for their hard work throughout the season".
"In Santiago de Compostela we had a quite hard and demanding race, with technical lap times and due to the rain, it was quite complicated, despite this we had a good time. For me the race went well. On Friday in the Super Test I had a crash in a rocky area. On Saturday, in the first special stage, the chain came off and I lost a lot of time, but I was able to recover and finish in fourth position. On Sunday I was doing better, I was getting good times and I was in third place provisionally, but when I reached the second lap, in the Cross Test, I had a technical problem that I could not solve and I was forced to abandon. We are leaving this race with a bad taste, but even so, in the end we finished in fourth place in the championship. I want to thank the team, who as always have been great, and all the sponsors".
