“All stages have their degree of difficulty. Today it was thought to be flat, but the teams made it difficult. They were 170 kilometers very complicated to drive. It was a very leg-breaking stage, because it got on and off, “Gamero told Cr Cycling.
“I am very happy for the work we are doing with the team (Alaín Quispe and Steve Robinson). We are going to continue fighting to finish in the best way this Vuelta a Chiriquí ”, added the Peruvian credit.
At the beginning the race would be 141.4 km, but at the last moment it was decided to extend the distance.
